This photo of the squash has no EXIF data either.

I just pulled up that photo again. It was resized in photoshop elements and the EXIF data is intact. 'Sorry for the difficulty.

Try this one, please. I just re-took the photo using the A-200 with the Contrast-1, Saturation and Sharpness at +2. Due to the time (4:45am) I had to use bounce flash. I hope this one works.

No...still no EXIF data. If you use Picasa to re-size the original image, it will preserve the EXIF information. Before you post another picture, you can always open it in Picasa, right click, select properties and it will show whether the EXIF data is there or not.

Hi there, Tullio-

Here is the link to the imageicasaweb.google.com/anchorlecturers/20091009#5390635152808504754

The EXIF seems intact (based on right clicking). Hopefully this will work this time.

Have a great day.

OK, I got it this time. Thanks for the efforts, Sarah.

So, this image was produced by the A200. This was shot in P mode, color mode (standard), DRO standard, and all Pict Adj. settings set to standard. AF is set to Wide. I'd like to compare this shot with the A230 shot of the same subject. I can almost guarantee that the A230 had different settings.

The settings I suggested for the A200 were color mode = Landscape (not set the dial to the little mountain icon, which represents the landscape, but on the menu). Then set Sat and Sharpness to +2 and Contrast to -2. Set DRO to OFF, AF spot (produces the sharpest images since the center is the only AF point that has a cross pattern (internally)).

Tullio-

I apologize for being so late in getting back to this thread. However, it has been a totally WILD day. It is 3:45pm and I just got back to the hopuse!

The photo that I took with the A-200 was taken with Contrast -1 and Saturation and Sharpness to +2. However, it was taken with the Mode Selector set to Landscape, which, as i understand it, cancelled out those Creative Settings noted above.

So, off I go to explore setting the Landscape command on the Menu. Back in a few minutes.

Yes, once you chose creative modes (on the dial), all menu settings get reset. Not only that, whatever changes you make, don't get saved. The EXIF program also indicates that you use a Tamron lens. When I shoot with my Tamron, I set the aperture to F11 and let the camera do the rest. Unless, of course, I'm in real low light. Then I increase the aperture to f8 or f7.1 (less than that, IQ deteriorates badly.

Tullio-

I have been in the A-200 documentation for 25 minutes. It looks like I cannot find how to select Landscape within the Menu Structure. Perhaps I am dense. Help me out please.

Many thanks!

Go to Menu1/creative style. Landscape should be the 4th entry (Std, Vivid, Port, Land,...). Select landscape and move to the right to set Contrast, Saturation and Sharpness. Then click the center button in the back. Once you get back to the menu, you'llsee Landscape showing to the right of Creative Style. This setting is good for P/A/S/M modes.

Thank you so very much, Tullio-

I have it all done. So here I go to take another photo of that dumb Decorative Squash.

Stand by, and have a great day. I will have another image for you shortly.
