Re: Not even 7.5 M ???Re: why my Lx7 only have 7.5 M for the fine photo quality?

Where you went wrong was confusing megapixels with megabytes.  The number of megapixels in the sensor influences file size, but there's no straightforward correlation between the two and image size will vary, so your file sizes will appear to be "random".  That's normal.

I select the fine quality, AKA 7.5 M, on my LX7

and the file size of my photos come out not even 7.5M .

They would randomly be somewhere between 3M to 5M or 6M .

What did I do wrong here? please help.

Thanks
