Just wondering, do you always shoot at maximum resolution at the highest quality settings all the time?

Or are you more selective? What, according to you, determines the resolution/quality settings?

Thanks.

i always shoot at 5mp (mine is a 5mp cam) cos i have the mentality that when i DO NOT shoot at 5mp if i dun think it's needed, murphy is gonna pay me a visit and i'll eventually need it at 5mp! hahaah

but i dun shoot at the best quality. will use best quality if i am SURE i will need to print it. even then i can't really tell all that much difference. :dunno:

I shoot at 3MP all the time. Two reasons. Mainly because its my highest resolution on my camera (D30) and also, 3MP is a good compromise between quality and file size.

If I had a 6MP cam, I would still shoot at 3MP unless I am sure that I will be printing the image. Then I use RAW 6MP.

always shoot at 6MP fine setting (2nd highest setting - highest creates a TIFF file). allows me to print big if required.

Desired setting:
3 MP routine to save space and 5MP for the special pictures. Still looking for one that offers that. Usually the next lower setting is 2MP.

I'll shoot at 5MP RAW if I can afford to wait for the lag. Else 5MP fine JPEG.

Hi,

Depends. For snapshots, etc, I use mid or low res. For the "real" shots, the full res. Never shot raw - too troublesome and take up too much space though it's supposed to give superior quality. :)
