20 Most Recent Epson PhotoPC 650 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


To be honest I think the camera, although great in its day has given you good service, unless changing the batteries or gently pulling on the camera contacts to make them give better contact with the batteries works I think that it is what is known as 'beyond economic repair' I. Even. Time to buy a new camera. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Make sure you're using an ATA-compatible CompactFlash memory card. Other cards may not work with PhotoPC 650.

Adjust the brightness of the screen using the Camera SETUP menu. See page 3-14 for instructions. In direct sunlight conditions, you may need to shield the LCD display monitor with your hand.

When you take pictures under certain artificial lighting conditions- such as fluorescent, incandescent, or halogen lighting, the colors in your image may take on a yellow or green cast. You can use HotShots to touch-up the colors; see Chapter 7 for instructions.

Make sure you look straight through the viewfinder. Keep in mind that the area visible through the viewfinder is slightly smaller than the area captured in the photo. If you're taking a close-up or macro mode picture, turn the camera dial to the LCD mode so that you can use your LCD screen to preview your picture.

No, the collections are operating system dependent so they cannot be read by both Mac's and PC's. The collections created on a Mac can only be read on a Mac and vice versa.

hotoPC 650 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. Additionally, if your pictures are taken in 1154 x 864 mode, try increasing your video resolution above 640 x 480. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.

The red-eye reduction feature causes the flash to blink on and off rapidly, then flash normally. This may cause over exposure and subject discomfort in the macro mode.

When you do a "save as" and save them back to the CompactFlash card the JPEG header is changed. So when you insert the card back into the camera, the camera doesn't recognize or see the file.

Although the photos are saved as .JPG, is there an issue with the physical size of them ? Perchance, should the loaded image exceed the size of the paper loaded, the printer may not be able to print it.
