Image quality must be set before the picture is
taken. Four image-quality modes are available;
1600 X 1200 Fine, 1600 X 1200 Standard, 1280
X 960 Standard, and 640 X 480 Standard.
Image quality is based on two factors: image size and
compression. Changes are displayed on the LCD monitor.
Image quality is set in the main recording menu, see page 36.
IMAGE QUALITY
If image quality is changed, the frame counter will display the approximate number of
images that can be recorded at that setting on the installed memory card. One memory
card can contain images with differing image-quality. The number of images that can be
stored on a memory card is determined by the size of the card and the file size of the
images. The actual file size is determined by the scene; some subjects can be
compressed further than others.
45
The number in the image-quality option refer to the horizontal and vertical pixel
dimensions of the image. The greater the number of pixels, the larger the file size.
Choose image size based on the final use of the image - smaller images will be more
suitable for web sites whereas larger sizes will produce higher quality prints.
All images are compressed and saved as JPEG files. The compression rate is indicated
by FINE and STD (standard). Fine images have a lower compression rate and larger file
sizes. Standard is sufficient for normal usage.
