JPEG compression modes

Here are four samples of the same subject each shot a differing JPEG compression's from the worst (Good) to the best (Super). There's VERY LITTLE difference in quality between Better, Best and Super.

Here's a 200% blowup of the same detail from the image at each different compression quality.

Another request from many users has been the inclusion of shots taken at differing resolutions, so here again is the same shot taken at each of the three resolutions available on the camera (all at Best quality).

Digita

I could talk for hours about Digita. It's a great idea, excellently executed. The CPU on the DC265 is obviously faster than the DC260 and Minolta Dimage EX1500 and this helps Digita greatly..

Unfortunately I fear that this excellent feature is also the Achilles heel of the camera, it suffers from similar "live screen" LCD update problems that the EX1500 and DC260 do, I hope that future versions of cameras using Digita will choose a hardware path for the preview image.

I look forward to newer, faster and more flexible versions of this imaging operating system and I hope that other manufacturers can see the value of allowing camera owners to be able to either write their own extensions or download scripts written by others.
