Hello! I don't know why but I guess my Finepix E900 has a lot of noise.

I've sent a sample to Fuji Spain and they told me it's okay, but I believe it's not

I can send you the whole pix (2MB) but I guess this would help you making an idea of what I'm talking about.

Does any of you experienced this? Is this normal? I mean, this is no start-up camera...

I tried downloading your image, but only got about the top 1/4 of the picture. However, the EXIF data was there. I have the S9000 which has the same CCD as your camera. Although the cameras have the capability of using higher ISO settings, I always use the lowest practical ISO that I can. And I probably push that to the extreme because I have shot night photos of lighted buildings at ISO 80. As you can imagine, long exposures (four seconds at f/5.6) but they turned out very nicely and had virtually no noise.

Your EXIF data indicates that your picture was taken at ISO 400. I would recommend using ISO 100 or even ISO 80 for your outside daytime photos. And, I would also suggest you try an EV compensation of -2/3. On my cameras that compensation seems to make the colors richer and seems to help minimize the noise as well.

Thank you for the prompt response!!!

I'm a little newbie with this. How can I change the ISO setting? (I use AUTO mode most of the time).

Thank you a lot for the info!

Regards,

I'm afraid I don't know anything about your camera. I have never seen one. On my camera there is an "f" button. When I press that button one of my options is to set the ISO. You will have to refer to your manual for any more information.

I know shooting in the AUTO mode is very tempting. But you will discover that if you experiment was some of the other options that are available you will likely begin to realize the real potential your camera has to offer. Good luck. I'm afraid I cannot help you any more with your problem.

In fact, you did it! I found the button you told me and I was able to change that value to 80!

Thank you!
