Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Image format and size, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
By default, your camera shoots in JPEG format.…Established by the Joint Photographic Experts Group,…JPEG is a compressed image format, that is, it takes the original image data…that your camera captures and it crunches it down so that it takes up far less storage.…JPEG compression is a lossy compression scheme, that is, there is a loss of…quality when JPEG compression is applied to an image.…The more compression you apply, the more your image is visibly degraded.…Most cameras give you a few different JPEG conversion choices.…
Some compress more than others and therefore degrade your image more than others.…Your camera also captures a certain number of pixels.…When shooting JPEG images, most cameras give you the choice of shooting at lower…pixel counts, in addition to the full pixel extravaganza.…So you might be able to save an image that's only half size.…This is another way of saving space on your storage card.…Finally, some cameras also give you the option to shoot in RAW mode, a …non-compressed format that offers a lot of editing advantages over JPEG.…
