Hi guys! So i bought my first camera and got it yesterday. Was really excited as i have been using my phone and really wanted to get a "real" camera!
Anyways my issue is, i took some pictures this moring and they look fine when viewed normally on the computer but when its zoomed it, it looks a bit weird to me... As if there is too much noise...
I dont know if i am over reacting or not doing it right or i am expecting too much from this cam.
Please i would like to hear your honest views as i new to this thing
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: It does not look that bad now i upload it...

That's a beautiful shot!
I am not sure where you are seeing graininess but I see alot of detail in the leave, butterfly, and the water droplets. I really like the photo!
I was considering a point and shot (own a SL1 Rebel) and the SX530 looks like a good camera --
Just my thoughts that you took a great photo!

The background will blur due to depth of field from zooming into the butterfly. I am not sure if you know that.
If you don't want that effect, you could try not zooming and then just cropping your photo to the butterfly. But I think that could cause graininess too -- I haven't tried it yet.
Best suggestion I have is to try different focal lengths and compare.
I am guessing too that as you zoom in, the ISO goes up (and hence the graininess) to handle the zoom (sorry, I don't have all the technical jargon to explain this!).
I have not tried any other cameras and phones (but would be nice to compare!) so cannot offer any thoughts on the differences with the Samsung. I do see lots of great shots with Apple and other phones. I've told myself though if I decide to get another camera I will demo first. I don't know where you live but the camera shop here where I live offers demos -- beats spending lots of money and discovering I don't like something!
BTW: an entry level DSLR camera will not break your piggy bank. I got my SL1 with 18-55 mm lens for under $600, less than some/many point and shot cameras.
I hope you enjoy learning how to create satisfying images with the camera -- I am anyway.
All the best!
