Choose the image size and quality best suited to your purpose.
Higher quality levels and numbers of recorded pixels produce clearer 
images for printing, but the resulting increase in data volume reduces the 
total number of pictures that can be taken. 
When you choose high image quality as well as a large image size, it 
may take ten seconds or more for the camera to finish recording after 
shooting.
Choose the appropriate number of recorded pixels and quality level on 
the [A Rec. Mode] menu.
