Oly C700 Is Giving Me Grief.. Help Please!

Fri Sep 27, 2002 9:21 am

Hi there..

I have on Oly C700 and take TONS of pictures with it.. I find that most of my pictures are either grainy, jagged, dark or a combo of all 3.

I normally dont mind, because what I see at EWR is usually something I will see again, aka, a CO 73NG.. however, it really upset me when CO Peter Max 772 roared in over my head @ 150 AGL on 9/22

Any help on how to set my ISO's and settings and stuff for the C700 would be appeciated..

Thanks
JBLU

Well, the best is 100 ISO. A good thing to learn is to use only the A/S/M mode, and control the shutter manually and let the aperture have a mind of it's own. I only use the higher ISO settings when its darker outside.

I used ISO 100 and diafragma 7.0 in LHR, and all my pictures were as grainy as what  Sad

What is wrong with those settings?

I use the C-700 in P mode with ISO 100 and it works fine, I even got some of these pics onto the database.

JBLU,
I use the C-700 as well, and all but 2 or 3 shots of mine in the data base were taken with it. Here are my settings:
aperture or shutter priority to achieve at least 1/400th of a second.
ISO 100 only.
Optical zoom only, NEVER use the digital zoom (that may be the culprit)
SHQ mode.
White balance set to auto, but frequently set it manually with white card stock.
Metering done with matrix mode 80 percent of the time, spot mode for those tricky dark or backlit shots.

Hope that helps.
