Question photo quality ?

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason some pictures i take are only 19 KB and some are 98 KB! How do I make sure that all my photos are large size?? I can take 3 pictures (of the same thing) in a row and the size will go up and down! I don't know how or why this is happening

The camera is using jpg compression, so image sizes will vary depending on how compressible it is. To get higher quality pics you need to start the camera and press the options key, then select picture size and picture quality to max. This WILL slow down the camera. But pic size in bytes will always vary when using jpg.

1. Be sure that your camera settings are set to the highest settings. (Size: Large; Picture Quality: Superfine)

2. Don't zoom in on the camera. It's a digital zoom, so zooming in will reduce the picture size.

The file size doesn't really mean much even if you're taking photos of the same thing. Unless you have your BB on a tripod with a remote trigger under controlled lighting you can't guarantee that the photos are identical as far as JPG compression is concerned.

What's the actual resolution of the 3 photos?
