Image size and quality

You can choose image size (number of Short description of the image size Shooting still images pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot. The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a 5M (2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2,592 pixels horizontally 1,944 vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size. You can select an image quality level from Fine (high quality) or Standard. Each has a different compression ratio. When you select Fine and make the image size larger, you get better quality. However, the amount of data needed to preserve your image is larger and the number of images recordable in the “Memory Stick” is fewer. Choose an image size and quality level appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot by checking the table below. 1) The default setting is [5M]. This size can give the highest image quality using the camera. 2) This option records images in a horizontal to vertical proportion of 3:2 to match the size of the print paper used or postcards. The following illustration shows a brief image using the maximum image size and the minimum one. Display size: 5M 640 Image size: 5M 2,592 pixels × 1,944 pixels = 5,038,848 Display size: VGA (E-Mail) Image size: VGA 640 pixels × 480 pixels = 307,200
