marjie,

great pic, though i think i'd move that one big cloud to another location

i'd really suggest finding what's making that smog effect though. it's going to be nothing but heartache if you dont.

Hey everyone,

Cameraken... I dont know if it is condensation but you were right about the memory card. I took a couple of photos today without the memory card and they still jad the smog in them.
I would really love to find out what the camera is doing...it might be time for an upgrade.

Kraellin, moving that cloud is pretty easy with the techniques shown here, in this thread. Thanks for responding and Ill keep you up to date on what the camera is doing.

Take it easy

margie,

sounds like you've got it somewhat isolated to the add-on memory. could just be that stick is doing it. do you have another? and, if you take duplicate pictures with and without the card do they come out the same?

Hey Kraellin

Its definitely not the memory card. I tried taking a couple of pics with the onboard memory and they came out with the same 'smog' effect. I have emailed the manufacturer of the camera and am waiting for a reply from them. Will let you know what they say.

Take it easy

ScubaMargie, I have known cameras to fail, my 10+ yo kodak is becoming very pixelated, some of the newer Canons had CCD failures and quite a few clients have commented about deteriorating images in digital over time, added to this, with projectors we have experienced hairline fractures in the chips which also provide articulated flaws in images. Hope your feedback is more positive than mine from the manufacturer. Due to declining image I have recently replaced my camera with a new one, my original having costed in excess of $2000 and the cheap replacement, much more capable at $495 or thereabouts

There is an action that is highly recomended across many sites, available from Adobe Exchange. It is called the underwater action and was developed for of course underwater images. Here is the result, I tweaked nothing else, which of course you could.

Hey Cassidy,
I am still waiting for a reply from the manufacturer, I hope they dont take too long. Thanks for the reply, I'll let everyone know what happens when I do get a reply from them.

creeduk, I love what you did to the pic and am now going over to Adobe Exchange to get the action. Thanks

Take it easy

I never use the Auto adjustments however I tried it on the fish, (autocolor, auto levels, auto contrast) and it looks similar to the one from the action above but with more contrast.
