I need some education on just what the D100 does to get these various resolutions. I assume that at Large setting it is activating all ccd sensor pixel area to acquire the image. What is it doing to get to the Medium or Small resolution. Turning pixels off? Combining pixels into groups for the smaller resolutions?

Ok, you say, why is he asking this question. Here goes.

I took the same picture at both the Large setting and then the Medium (both set to Normal compression). Sharpness set to Normal, WB set to Flash, Matrix for both. What did I get? Well at the Medium setting it seemed to have greater color depth, I could not tell any difference in the quality.

Why am I seeing this?

Still learning

I always want the next model up!
