Re: In Canon S95, why the largest size for JPEG is only 1.6MB?

I have a G12, which, apart from the optics, is basically the same camera as the S95. With the JPEGs set to Size: Large and Quality: Fine, my pictures typically vary between 1.5 and 3 MB, with a few turning out even smaller or larger.

I've read somewhere that Canon chose to leave out the Superfine setting from their cameras, since you couldn't tell any difference between Superfine and Fine at normal print sizes anyway. I think you should ask yourself if you're happy with how your pictures/prints are turning out. If yes, then it doesn't really matter what size the files are, does it? You even save space on your HD If no, then I suggest you shoot RAW and fine-tune the JPEGs to you own liking.
