[Question] Details on the Picture quality mode and the image size.
The file size of a still image is determined by a combination of its picture quality mode and image size. There are two picture quality modes depending on the compression ratio used - normal mode (N) and fine mode (F).
For a movie, you can select the movie size.
|Normal mode (N)||An image is compressed higher, then the file size becomes small.|
|Fine mode (F)||An image is compressed lower, then the file size becomes large.
This is a higher quality than Normal mode.
