I just got the V705 yesterday. I'm a commercial real estate agent and I was attracted by the 23mm lens. I took some pictures todayand found that the results looked highly compressed with lots of noise...even on pictures of perfect blue sky. Then I noticed that my 7.1 megapixel pictures were only coming out to 1 MB file sizes. My other 7 megapixel camera produces 3 MB photos.
What's wrong with my camera? I have reviewed all the settings, read the manual, and asked at a local shop that carries the camera. Is the camera compressing the files "in camera"? Should it matter that I'm transferring my pics to the PC by simply transferring the SD card, instead of using EasyShare? What were the maximum file sizes from the V507?
