3 Setting the Image-Recording Quality
I want to select the image-recording quality matching the paper
size for printing.
Refer to the diagram on the left when
choosing the image-recording quality. If
you want to crop the image, selecting a
higher quality (more pixels) such as 73,
83, 1+73, or 1 is recommended.
b is suitable for playing back the image
with a digital photo frame. c is suitable
for emailing the image or using it on a
What’s the difference between
7 and 8?
These settings indicate the different levels of image quality caused
by different compression rates. The
7 setting produces a higher
image quality with the same number of pixels. Although
a slightly lower image quality, this allows more images to be saved
on the card. Both b and c have 7 (Fine) quality.
I was able to take more shots than the number of possible shots
Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to take
more shots than is indicated. It may also be fewer than indicated.
The number of possible shots displayed is only approximate.
Does the camera display the maximum burst?
The maximum burst is displayed on the viewfinder’s right side. Since
it is only a single-digit indicator 0 - 9, any number higher than 8 will
be displayed only as “9”. Note that this number will also be displayed
even when no card is installed in the camera. Be careful not to shoot
without a card in the camera.
When should I use
1 images must be processed on a computer. For details, see
“1” and “1+73” on the next page.
