BASIC OPERATION
IMAGE QUALITY SELECTION
This digital camera supports four image quality modes – super-fine (SUPER FINE),
fine (FINE), standard (STD.), and economy (ECON.).
Image quality is related to the rate of compression of the image. The rate of compres-
sion increases, and image quality decreases, in the order super-fine 
fine 
stan-
dard economy.
The lower the rate of compression of the image, the higher its quality. If image quality
is important, use the super-fine or fine mode. Note, however, that as the rate of image
compression is low (no compression in the super-fine mode), the number of images
able to be saved in the compact flash card will be less than in the economy or stan-
dard modes.
If economic use of the compact flash card is important (the need to save as many
images as possible in it), use the economy or standard modes. Note, however, that as
the rate of image compression is high, the quality of the images will be lower than in
the super-fine or fine modes.
The rate of compression, the image recording format, and the number of images
which may be saved in a 30MB compact flash card is shown below for the four image
quality modes.
• The number of images for every image quality are approximate values only. The
actual numbers will vary with the scenes photographed.
