Image Quality and Compression
The process of reducing the file size of a picture when storing it is called compression.
In this camera, pictures are compressed and recorded as JPEG files.
• The more a picture is compressed, the smaller the picture size becomes and the larger the num-
ber of pictures that can be stored in memory or on a memory card. However, the quality of the
image is degraded and the reproducibility of the image’s fine areas is reduced.
• The less a picture is compressed, the larger the picture size becomes and the smaller the number
of pictures that can be stored in memory or on a memory card. However, it maintains the pre-
sentation of the image’s fine areas and increases the image quality.
Image Quality Setting
Image quality can be also selected in the assist modes (
28) or scene modes (
34).
