Hello all. As my name indicates, I am new to digital photography, so PLEASE take it easy on me.

I recently purchased a D5100 and am very happy with it. I took a 1/2 day workshop on how to make use of it's features, and I learned a ton, though I am still a novice.

Here is something I have run into. Even in "FINE" mode and "LARGE" setting, my files are only 3-7 megs max, with the average being around 4 MB per file. I was under the impression that a 16.2 MP camera should produce files much larger than that. Everyone I talk to says the same thing, if it's set to fine and large the files should be between 8 and 25 megs.

I am using a 32gig class 10 micro SD card (with adapter).

Can anyone help me? Is there any way at all this is the camera? I have even reset the camera to it's defaults, and reset the file type and photo size (fine and large) to no avail. I hope this is sufficient info for someone to help me.

Thanks in advance,
