You believe that your photos are not 7 megapixels, but I am wondering how you know.
So, let's find out for sure.
On your computer, use Windows Explorer and go to the folder where your W80 photos are stored.
Click on that folder and the files should show up in the right half of the window.
At the top of the screen, click "View" and then click "Tiles".
That should give you an icon for each photo with the size of the photo.
For 7 megapixels, you should see 3072 x 2304.
If you don't see that size, what size do you see?
Blurred photos can mean several things.
Is the entire image blurred or is only the subject in the image blurred?
Were the blurred photos taken indoors/outdoor and with/without flash?
Something to try:
Set the camera on a solid surface, such as a railing, table, chair, etc.
Take a photo, making sure the camera is not moved while taking the photo. Wait at least 2 seconds before moving the camera.
Check that photo by looking at it on the computer.
If the image sharp and blurr free?
The memory card should not affect image quality.
If the card has previously been used on other equipment, be sure to format the card with the Camera.
See page 58 of the Cyber-Shot Handbook.
Note: a format will delete all photos and files on the memory card.
I keep hearing all the good things about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80, but to me it doesnot go anywhere close to 7 mega pixel. The camera is supposed to be anti-blur, but the pictures I have taken are very blury. I am not really sure what is going wrong and this is really frustrating. If anyone can suggest me why my pics could be blur? or why am I not gettin 7 mega pixel quality? I must say the pics are not even close to my 3.2 mega pixel camera of canon. I have inserted a sony memory card which I used previously as pen drive. Could anyone tell me if a Memory Slot effect the quality of my camera's performance??
