I have a P7000 that I bought second hand to take when I don't want to carry a full slr rig.I was downloading some files at the weekend and noticed the files were generally between 15mb and 16mb. As far as I am aware the P7000 is a 10mb camera, so can anyone explain the larger file sizes?Great camera and it is a handy size with great functionality.Kind regards,ftMy Nikonians GalleryAyrshire, Scotland

It is a 10 MP (megapixel) camera. MB (megabytes) is file size.

Hi ftYes around 15Mb is correct (for raw since I only take raw files). If JPG is chosen then I believe smaller files are possible.This size of file compares closely with my D200 raw files with "un-compressed" chosen ie. also an approx 10Mb sensor.After an edit in either of the NX2 software this size increases by a further 4 - 5 Mb due to the "large" JPG file saved within the raw image after edit...
