.....Just for your information.......if you're printing on a 8 x 11 inch page ...the 1200 x 1600(with the three modes) would not have noticable difference. I have Done an experiment on this. The difference may only be seen at higher prints (must stick to the 1200 x 1600 size).
Try it out yourself with the same image size with the three compression modes. The file size however would be varying by the size of the compression. So if you want to do lots of manipulation of image - i think the Super FIne one is the choice. But if for normal use and want more spacein your CF card, the normal mode is the way to go.
I personally use a Canon digital Cam and it has the same compression modes.
