I took these photos today using a 4MP Kodak DX6490.
However, I am unsatisfied with the quality. They seem soft and it appears they have a considerable amount of JPEG compression yet I photographed them in the highest quality mode (4MP).
I resized these to around 1024 width and I sharpened them once:
Does anyone have any idea what may be the problem? Is the DX6490 just not a good camera for action photography?
Again, they were taken in the highest quality mode setting, but I was surprised at the amount of JPEG compression. You can't see the JPG compression as much anymore since I resized it.
But it still seems soft and unclear.
Does it simply require unsharp mask? I'm on a laptop right now and on vacation so I don't have Paint Shop Pro. As a result, I am using Irfanview which only does a regular sharpen mode.
If the photos simply need unsharp masking, then I'll work on them when I'm back home on my PC which has Paint Shop Pro.
However, I have a feeling they are just bad photos...but I can't figure out why. The lighting was perfect.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
