    digital zoom tend to be grainly because the pixels are interpoled to reflect the increase in zoom. Try not to use digital zoom. If possible, and if money allows it, do get a telephoto convertor.

    1/200 to 1/4 at iso50? for sunset? wat's ur aperture?

    seems a little slow (shutter) to me, the pics must have been pretty bright? could it have been over-exposure? (as well as the digital zoom)

    i not too sure also lar, no expert, just thot about ur shutter speeds and it seemed way slower than wat i've used to take sunsets...

    I used to take sunset at ISO 100, f22 and 1/4. Usually I use small aperture to have a richer pinkish color of the sky.
