I'd like to revive this thread and get more comparisons of fine vs. standard mode, especially for those of us who will probably never print the picture, just crop it and display it on our monitors.

Even enlarged by 400%, is there a visual difference on the monitor that would justify the card and hard drive space taken up by fine mode?

The difference in file size is few Kb.

But if you enlarge both of them viewing at 200% the first one has less jpg compression artifacts. (Look at her nose and forehead)

Indeed it is the first one the less compressed (4,01:1, i.e. saves more bits for each byte or stg like that), while the one you named "fine" is the standard instead.

Also note that you won't find much differnce between FINE and TIFF.

It is not the jpg compression an issue with FZ20, but rather the way it sometimes deals with noise, which is very hard tojpg compress.

Interesting comparison. Did you print these to see any difference?
