    Viewing photos on Wii

    Hey total Noob here... to D-SLR and to this forum.

    I have a question.. has anyone else tried to view their photos on Wii?

    I have noticed that some of my pictures do not look very sharp. Now my assumption is.. that its the way either the Wii or my flatscreen is interpreting the photos or perhaps its a resolution to Wii/TV issue...

    Anyone else had this problem or are my pictures just really that bad? lol

    Re: Viewing photos on Wii

    I've never paid much attention, as I've only looked at pictures on it when I first got it...and those were from my 3mp p&s of the time. Bear in mind that the Wii is a low-def source being viewed through a hi-def screen. Not a good combination. Think of it in the same way regular cable or network channels look after seeing them in high-def, they actually look better on a crt tv because the lo-def signal is getting displayed the same way. The hi-def amplifies the bad.
    mostly Nikon gear

    Feel free to edit my images for critique, just let me know what you did.

    Re: Viewing photos on Wii

    Like N8 said, Wii's are not HD. They run off an analog video signal and thus, your hi resolution pics will not appear hi res when viewed through the wii.

    Pictures taken with the best camera in the world would appear just as pixlated, dont worry about it. Hook your DSLR's video out (probably a mini HDMI depending what you have) and view those on your TV and you'll see a drastic difference.

    Feel free to edit and repost my photos for critique if you feel so inclined! :idea:
