So i'm not completely retarded, or so i thought... But today, my wife stole all our newer/nicer bodies to go do a session; so i had some free time to go out and shoot.
Well, aside from the fact that she forgot to bring cards for the extra bodies she brought with her which rendered all but 1 body useless (to her to which i laughed to myself about)
all i had to play with was our XSi, and the lowly D60 (which after shooting it again gives me a new-found appreciation for the AF systems in all our other bodies including the XSi)
So anyway, I just got back and was uploading the pictures to flip through them, and noticed something odd; the D60 is supposed to be a 6mp camera, and the XSi a 12mp camera. I shot in Raw, full sized as i'm accustom to, and on the camera it told me the files on the xsi were going to be 12M 4272x2848, and the D60 i assumed would be around 6.3mp at 3072 x 2048. i guess it just seemed logical as the 7d at 18M makes raw files that are 5184x3456 just shy of 18million pixels, all are at 24bit, and the xsi and D60 don't have a small or medium raw size that i can find in the menu, and the menu told me the size the images would be on the xsi. But the files i have on the computer are much smaller, just around 3mp from both cameras 2256x1504 from the xsi and 2048x1360 from the D60.
am i just being stupid or what's goin on?
