Choose the number of pixels (size) and quality level (data compression 
rate) of pictures according to how you intend to use the pictures you have 
taken.
Pictures with larger recorded size or the more E are clearer when printed. 
The number of pictures that can be taken (the number of pictures that can 
be recorded on an SD Memory Card) becomes less with larger file sizes.
The quality of the captured photo or printed picture depends on the quality 
level, exposure control, resolution of the printer and a variety of other 
factors so you do not need to select more than the required number of 
pixels. For example, to print in postcard size, 1.5M size is enough. Set the 
appropriate recorded size and quality level depending on purpose.

Choose the appropriate number of recorded pixels and quality level for 
images on the [A Rec. Mode] menu.
