Choose the number of pixels (size) and quality level (data compression 
rate) of still pictures according to how you intend to use the pictures you 
have taken.
Higher quality levels and numbers of pixels produce clearer images, but 
the resulting increase in data volume reduces the total number of 
pictures that can be taken (stored in the camera’s built-in memory or on 
the SD Memory Card).
The quality of the captured photo or printed picture also depends on the 
quality level, exposure compensation, resolution of the printer and a 
variety of other factors, so you do not need to select more than the 
required number of pixels. As a rough guide, i (1600×1200) is 
adequate for making postcard-size prints. Refer to the table below for the 
appropriate settings according to use.
 
Appropriate Number of Recorded Pixels According to Use
The default setting is P (2816×2112).
• V (1280×960) can only be set for recorded pixels when R mode is set.
 
Appropriate Quality Level According to Use
The default setting is D (Better).
