smallest image setting and out of focus shots?
« on: January 15, 2014, 08:59:57 PM »

hello,

used my rebel t3i for some landscape shots today and forgot the setting was at lowest quality 720x480. focus was on AUTOMATIC with the 6 focus points red lights. got home and previewed the images and the focus was very soft and fuzzy across each image. is this a function of the low resolution? seems like when I shoot at the much higher jpg setting or raw there is not so much of this. well the trip was not a complete waste because I found good locations to shoot for the panoramas I want, will just have to go back again and set the camera properly.

Note: the attached image is a 2 image combined into one panorama. not too sharp of focus.

Probably. If I look at your image at my monitor's native resolution of 125ppi the photo is 5 3/4 inches wide and it looks fine. But at full screen (20 inches wide) it is only 35 ppi which is not enough to render much detail.
Plus the conversion in-camera to a jpeg may not have helped.
