[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.
