In Canon S95, why the largest size for JPEG is only 1.6MB?
Aug 23, 2011

I just got my Canon S95, but I found the largest size for JPEG (L and lower compression) is only 1.6MB. I called Canon support and the tech support guy checked the manual and said it is indeed about 2MB for the largest size. I still doubt about it. My 18-meg T2i produces about 10MB at its largest JPEG. If the calculation is based on proportion, then this 10-meg Canon S95 should produce 6MB at its largest JPEG. I need fellow Canon S95 users to tell me whether the technicial says is right.
