What is High vs. Normal Image size regarding Nikon Coolpix 2200?T

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Robert Meushaw, Jun 20, 2004.

  1. The literature for the Nikon Coolpix 2200 includes the following
    statement regarding image size:

    Image Size: High 1600 (1,600 x 1,200/Fine), Normal 1600 (1,600 x
    1,200/Normal), PC Screen 1024 (1,024 x 768/Normal), TV Screen 640 (640
    x 480/Normal)

    So what is the difference between "High 1600" and "Normal 1600", since
    they are both listed as 1600x1200 pixels? I can't find this described
    anywhere on Nikon's web site.

    Thanks.

    Hi...

    I'm not a Nikon user; but I can nevertheless tell you
    that the difference between your normal and fine
    settings will be the amount of jpg compression...

    Normal a little more compressed, so more pictures on
    your card in return for a greater chance of jpg artifacts.

    Fine a little less compressed, so less pictures on your
    card in return for less artifacts.

    Take care.

    Just a guess: the JPEG compression factor?

    High 1600=high quality, larger files
    Normal 1600=medium compression, smaller files than High 1600

    I am not sure about Nikon, but a Canon (A70) will let you set the
    compression and size independent from each other. You can choose high
    resolution (2048x1536) with couarse compression, or low resolution
    (800x600) withe superfine compression if you want to;
