Image size and quality

You can choose image size (number of Short description of the image size 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 2592 pixels horizontally and 1944 pixels vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size. You can select from Fine (high quality) or Standard image quality. Each uses a different compression ratio. When you select Fine, the image quality improves as the image size increases, but the amount of recorded data also increases and the number of images that can be recorded on a “Memory Stick” decreases. Refer to the table on the right and choose the image size and image quality appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot. 1) The factory setting is [7M] (DSC-P150) or [5M] (DSC-P100/P120). It is the highest image quality on this camera. 2) Images are recorded in the same 3:2 aspect ratio as photograph printing paper or postcards, etc. The following illustration shows a brief image using the maximum image size and the minimum one. Display size: 7M (DSC-P150 only) Image size: 7M 3072 pixels × 2304 pixels=7,077,888 pixels 640 Display size: 5M Image size: 5M 2592 pixels × 1944 pixels=5,038,848 pixels Display size: VGA (E-Mail) Image size: VGA 640 pixels × 480 pixels=307,200 pixels
