My camera doesn't have raw output, but it does have three JPG quality
settings. I just tested empirically to see how they correspond to the
JPEG Q parameter:
|Superfine ||1824k ||98|
Given that quality of 75 is considered adequate in most JPEG software,
there's some comfortable headroom here. Fine's 94 quality seems plenty
for the photos to me and saves almost half the space. Then
again with 1 gig of Compactflash for $83
, there's not much need to economize storage.
Bandwidth is still expensive, I'll have to remember
to recompress the images before uploading to Flickr.
