For most readers here, this post may be a waste of time. If it is, skip it. But, I have been asked to post photos from two different cameras in a side by side comparison. Both cameras were set to their maximums, the Fuji at 2 megapixel fine, the Nikon at 20 megapixel– I don’t know off the top if it was fine or otherwise. As expected, the Nikon is grabbing huge hard-drive real estate at 4.19 MB for ONE photo, so I won’t do this very often. The Fuji, at its maximum, is only taking 748 KB of space. On your screen, if you blow them up to full size, the Nikon will gobble up– there’s no other word for this– 5152 x 3864 screen size, the Fuji is using 1600 x 1200. If you have a hankering to see your quarterback’s nose hairs in closeup, the Nikon would be the way to go. These were both the same scene, taken up the street from in front of my house.
First, the Fuji
Now, the Nikon.
The Nikon does give a wider field of view– important I think of you’re gonna use up space the way this does.
Note: Weather was cool, overcast, threatening rain later. Have to mention that so nobody thinks the sky was supposed to be blue.
