D100 and Large, Medium, Small resolution
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?
I always want the next model up!

. It is not made public because I still don't like how it ends about Kodak printing services. Your comments wil be appreciated.
Have a great time :-)

I'm not sure what means the camera is using to accomplish downsizing, but it's very possible that it's averaging pixels. If this is the case, then the averaging out of noise (even a little) could be the explanation. I might try a couple experiments based on what you say.
