    Hi, Guys,

    I have Nikon 4500, it provides many image size and quality

    Sometime I want to shoot some informative pictures, like a
    description of an ark work in a museum, highest quality is not
    necessary but memory space is important. I am wondering I should use
    1024 * 768 with high quality or 2272*1704 with basic quality -- it use
    same amount or memory

    Thanks a lot!

    Largest pixel dimensions, basic quality. Having said that, you can buy
    256 meg CF cards for $40 so memory shouldn't be an issue.

    This question has been asked alot, and the answer is always that it's
    better to use higher resolution and more compression given the same
    file size.

    I've had two Olympus digitals now, and I've found almost no difference
    between SHQ and HQ compression settings. (And the SHQ file size is double
    that of HQ!) On the other hand, there's a big difference between resolution
