JPEG Compression for LCD Projector
Apr 9, 2013

I'm planning to shoot some jpeg images (in "RAW + JPG" mode)  for display with an "average quality" LCD projector.  I'll be editing these with a simple viewer (FastStone) on an under-powered laptop.  I'll shoot at 12 MP (4000x3000) to preserve the RAW quality for future "at home" editing with LR.  I have a choice as to the jpeg compression (quality) of the capture - Fine (~4.8 MB image) or Standard (~3.3 MB image).

My assumption is that the  larger sized Fine compression offers no advantage over Standard in editing or display since the LCD projector is the limiting factor in viewing fidelity.  Might as well minimize my storage size and processing speed.

(Might even be OK to shoot RAW-only and extract the even higher compressed 2.75 MB jpeg  embedded image?)

Is my assumption on required compression correct?
