Am I correct in assuming that the lower the number the better the image -
where the line of Exif data indicates 'compression bits per pixel'?
The reason I ask is, with the Fuji S5600 which I have, shooting an image
at the 2MP setting results in 2.6 bits per pixel; at the 3MP setting this will
reduce to 2 bits per pixel... and so I'd have assumed that the best possible
setting for JPGs (5MP Fine) would offer a further reduction in compression.
Far from it - this setting delivers 4 bits per pixel. Hence my question...
So, if anyone can shed some light on what appears to be a rather absurd
anomaly, I would be grateful.
