Default Micro SD image quality ??

Hi I'm in the process of getting a a tablet ,mainly to carry my photo's with me. I like the look of the Samsung S 10.5.
I seem to remember reading some while back that micro sd cards downgraded the quality of photo's.in comparison to full size sd cards. I've tried Googling it but as I have come up with nothing, perhaps I'm wrong.
So my question is , has anyone noticed this?
Thanks

I've never heard of this, and can't see how that could be true. The card is just a storage medium, it doesn't alter the data stored on it in any way. It just stores it.

Rubbish who said this

How can it, like transfering from a large hard drive to another size why would it matter

That would be like saying that images stored on a hard disk drive are better than images stored on a floppy. When an image fails, it all goes at once, not a little bit at a time.

G'day DS

Photography 101 ... the lens creates the image

I have done a few comparisons of a phone cam image vs a 3x zoom compact camera image

If it helps at all here's some side by sides...

1- Target image - a fishing boat at rest


2- Cropped image showing the flag - smartphone


3- Cropped image showing the flag - small compact Fuji 3x zoom


Hope this helps in some way

Phil

G day Phil,
thanks for your reply,seems a bit off topic but I love your shots on flicker, I'm not on there yet but keep thinking about it, just not got around to it.Rather than go too far down the off topic route I'll start a new thread, see the panasonic forum.

G'day mate

Have I done an 'ooops - mis-read the topic and whizzed off with an answer to what was not the problem?

Ah well, it's still nice to be amongst friends

Phil
