Basics of photography – Image Quality

Most digital cameras give you a choice of image quality settings, which can either be selected through the on-screen menu system or by pressing an external button. While the symbols for Image Quality may vary, most cameras use “SQ” or “Basic” for “Standard Quality” (only good for e-mail), “HQ” or “Normal” for “High Quality”, and “SHQ” or “Fine” for “Super High Quality.” Although you won’t be able to fit as many photos on your memory card at “High Quality” or “Super High Quality,” I highly recommend using these settings (especially if you plan to order prints).
