I am having a mental block with this, so hopefully my question makes sense:

What is the Impact on MegaPixels as it relates to Photo Quality and the Ability to Crop based on what Image Size (L, M1, M2 and S) you pick and what JPEG Quality (1 - 10) you pick ?

And asked another way, do I have to set my new to me 1D-IV to a certain setting to take full advantage of the 16MP ? So that if I set my Image Size to M1 and my JPEG Quality to 8, will I then NOT get the full 16MP ?

And yet another way......would a certain setting on a 1D-IV make the MP and Ability to Crop LESS than a 1D-III ?

Does it just go by JPEG File Size MP's so a IV will produce Larger MP's than a III?

Thanks,
Tom

Ability to crop is pretty much directly related to total number of MP. If you shoot RAW, you'll get every pixel the camera's capable of; If you shoot JPEG Large, likewise (but only 8 bit colour depth, not 12-14 as RAW can yield). If you shoot JPEG at smaller than the camera's max. you'll lose resolution, thus the ability to crop. If you use compression less than the best (10), you'll throw away nuances in colour. Shoot RAW, and process it later for whatever you need. Memory cards are cheap.

Thanks Jon !!

That make sense and easy to understand !!

(I have never shot Raw before but at least I know I will get the most out of my Jpegs.)

I never saw or understood the reason for M-RAW or S-RAW. Kinda defeats the whole purpose doesn't it?

I shoot S-Raw if I know its just for web content. But for all other shoots I shoot full size Raw.

I don't think it defeats the purpose. The purpose for shooting RAW is to get greater tonal range and to have greater latitude in making editing adjustments, such as exposure adjustments, changes to white balance, etc. Having fewer pixels (as one gets with M or S RAW) does not affect these purposes. All it affects is resolution, and resolution is really not a RAW vs. jPeg thing - it' purely a pixel thing.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
