Re: o why my pic is grainy

It doesn't appear particularly grainy or noisy on my screen, however there is some smoothing of detail in the shadows so maybe the camera applies a fair amount of noise reduction in iauto mode. Matters cannot be helped by a very low file size of 180kb for a 2000 x 1500 pixel image. The main problem with this picture is that it is severely under exposed - try to lighten it and I suspect you really will see some noise then! I would avoid iauto as it limits much of the control you have.
