I was wondering what is the difference between a Large Fine (smooth) and A large (normal) file on the 20D????

It is the amount of JPG compression used in the image.

Though I am not sure of what each name represents, guessing maybe large-fine would be jpg( 10 ) and large-normal may be jpg( 7 ), (Completely guessing on the compression numbers. :-)).

Hi,

the question is mainly relevant to what you want to do with the pics once you have shot them.

You have a great camera there, so I guess you will want to make some really great prints?

The larger the print that you wish to make the higher the number of pixels you should record (Large is best)and the lower the amount of compression (fine is best) you should use.

The best quality is obtained by using Raw setting, but thats another story :-)

For viewing on your PC you can use lower settings, but frankly its a waste of a high quality camera to use the lower settings.

Yes, I really don't want to waste a nice camera. I just wanted to see if the differences was noticable.
