Thread: need help to understand file size

  1. #1

    Question need help to understand file size

    Using Oly C-8080 I took a few jpeg picture in "P" mode and of resolution 3264x2448 and the file size can range from 755KB to 4209KB.

    Why is this so? I thought the file size will be the same.

    Hope someone can help me understand. Thank you.

    Btw, am I utilizing the 8MP in shooting jpeg or should I shoot in RAW or TIFF?

    Again, thanks

    File size depends on how much detail is in the photo! Shooting jpegs is easier...that's up to you. Been volumes written on raw vs jpeg.

    If you shoot in JPEG, file size is dependent on image size, image details and compression setting. RAW is also compressed but is proprietary for each manufacturer and file sizes will vary also. Uncompressed tiff will give you the same file size for same image size regardless of image details.
