Can anyone help or explain this, When I take pictures in RAW mode and then get them onto my computer and open them in S7RAW or Finepixviewer, the pictures come out at 10 megapixeles not 5. The sensor is supoosed to be 5.1 megapixels.

Any Ideas?

It is sort of a complicated thing (for me) so my explanation isn't going to be very clear. But perhaps it will spark a more concise answer from someone who does understand. The pixels from a Fuji super CCD have some sort of a diagonal configuration that when I have tried to read and understand the explanation it sounds to me like they are "split" diagonally. S7Raw records that split and therefore reports the 10 MP size. The picture really isn't any bigger. For what it's worth, Adobe Camera Raw reports your raw images at the advertised 5 MP. However, there are some individuals who like the idea that they are shooting a 10 MP image, and they will likely tell you how wrong I am.
