Hi,

New member here....got my 7D in December. I love it (still learning)...when I view the pics on the TV, they are not sharp. But my prints/output is sharp. Does anyone else have this problem? I also don't see different with anti-shake...not sure if its a problem with the camera, or maybe just me...

thanks,

Bon:?

The average television resolution is somewhere around 1024x768.

Basically, your camera has more resolution than your TV can even display.

Buy a higher resolution TV

TVs kind of suck (IMHO)

Bear in mind, TVs are designed to be viewed from across the room.

Your 3mp is a lot closer to TV resolution.

TV: 1024x768 (max)
3mp: 2000x1500 (give or take)
6mp: 3000x2000
(I hope these numbers are helpfull

Televisions and monitors are made for different purposes, I wouldnt consider a television worth using for critical examination.

Post a shot if you're worried about it.

In the US, NTSC TV is 720x486 (max with an NTSC monitor).
Usable TV resolution on a regular NTSC TV is anywhere from 720x480 to 580x430. I have seen digital cameras that only send 320x240 to the TV, however.

Nice info, thanks abredon. I've taken TVs to 1024x768 in gaming, but it looks terrible
