Which one to compromise? Size or Quality?
In event of running out of memory, which of the following is advisable?
1. set quality from Fine to Normal/Basic, file size remain as Large
2. set file size Large to Medium/small, quality remain as Fine
better to compromise size or quality?
for 4R print, wat's the min to set?
btw, I'm using D100.
Thank you inadvance for sharing

Hmm...i've been wanting to ask this question too. For me i'll set the file size smaller, quality remain as fine.

The quality level refers to the amount of compression, the quality drops as the compression increase.
i will choose to lower the quality and not the size, just like saving a jpeg using PS at level 12 vs level 8, little quality drop visible, but big different in file size.
If you reduce the resolution, you are actually throwing away all the pixels, i will rather compress the pixels more agressively than to throw the information away totally.
Of cos, the camera's compression algo also plays an important part. Try taking the same scene using the same setting at different quality level, see how much the file size differs and see if there are any visible lost of quality?

same here. usually i'll compromise size than quality, but wonder if it's right thing to do.
