i think i know what you means. i have yet to try on small- normal setting.
most normally i use large ( the highest full pixel )
well as i say earlier. i though higher pixel the better the image. learned that its not true.
Well. Good point that you have raised.
btw did you use small normal for night mode landscape example the link picture that i have posted?
Do you have other settings like ( Lower ISO ,long shutter speed at higher F stop ) company with?
