Digital Camera File Sizes

The following table is from http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/digital-camera2.htm. The higher the resolution setting on your digital camera, the larger the picture files will be (the more space they will take up on your memory card). TIFF files are uncompressed files and JPG/JPEG files are compressed, so they take up less space.
