I have been wondering why the file sizes that I get from the D70 on its "best" setting for quality which is "Fine and "Large" are only giving me about 2.75 Megabytes per picture.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"This camera is supposed to be 6.2 megapixels and I would have expected a much bigger file than that. I know I can get a bigger file size if I use the "Raw" setting but for most purposes I dont need that huge uptake of space on the Hard Drive.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I am further perplexed because my Olympus E20 that I had before the Nikon gave me about 3.75 Megabytes per picture and I have to say was a much better picture with more detail etc. in spite of it only having a 5 megapixel CCD.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Have I totally missed something from the Instruction manual regarding the settings of the camera or does anyone else find the same file size occuring on theirs?

Thanks for the tip, I hadn't realised there was any other forum specifically for Digital SLR's. I'll go and have a look to see if I can find it.
