I have just bought the Panasonic DMC FZ10. It is a 4 meg camera. When I take a pic the size is around 1.10 - 1.50 meg. However on this page and this photo

http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_...s/P1010014.JPG

P1010014.JPG
2304x1728
1,344,516

It says it is 1.3 meg, however is you download it and then look at the size it says it is 7.59 meg. Can this camera take this big of a picture? If so how do I change the settings to make it take this big of a pic?



Thanks for your help

You are downloading it as BMP which is pretty much the same size as a tiff.

If you run disk cleanup tool you will most likely be able to download as a JPG which then is 1.28mb

There are a couple other things that can prevent you from downloading as a JPG.

Hi burn133,

You might be looking at two different type of "megs" ...

The file P1010014.JPG is 2304 pixels by 1728 pixels to make a "4 Mega Pixel" image. (2304 x 1728 = 3981312 pixels).

The file's size on disk is 1.28 Mega Bytes. One Mega Byte is 1024 x 1024 Bytes. ( 1,344,516 / 1024 = 1313.00390625 / 1024 = 1.282230377197265625 mega bytes ... if you can trust the Windows Calc program ;~)

The 'file size' (in mega bytes) of each picture you take can vary due to the compression algorithms used to compress JPG files. In general a file with a lot of adjacent pixels that are the same color (like one with a lot of blue sky) be smaller than one with one that has a lot of variation.
