Also, no pixels are lost, since the raw file has the full uncropped image; only the jpegs are cropped. (Speaking for GRii.)

I’m pretty much sure that’s incorrect. I’ll need to check this tomorrow.

DNGs definitely cropped on my GR2.

The viewers/editors may only show the cropped picture. I have heard of the mentioned plugin, but not that it works for Ricoh...??

Thank you TN. That’s how I remembered as well.

I see 16MP being up to 23MB and 5.6MP up to 18MB. Just the few I have on my phone. The difference should be bigger unless the compression used are different. In general the cropped pictures file sizes are smaller though. More data (or the plugin) needed for a conclusion.
