Does it have the ability to take 36 or 48 bit pictures or is 24 the max?
As far as I can tell, the 40D files are 14 bit.
So times R G B, does that make it 42?
I think 24 bit is optimistic. I believe the Canon 40D has a 14 bit depth per channel.
14 bit internal, 16 bit via camera RAW. -Shea
Well Windows says its 24 bit. There are the specs of a photo shot on max JPEG quality (fine, high resolution).
Also does anyone know how many megapixles the camera records at with max JPEG quality vursus RAW?
8 bits per channel * 3 channels = 24 bit depth for Jpegs.
The number of pixels (at max size) is the same in JPEG or RAW.
So thats 10 MP then?
You know, I'd like to agree with you, but shooting RAW on an XTi vs jpeg, the raw has about 20 more pixels in each direction (I can't say the same for the 40D, though, as I don't really know). The point is moot when you talk about it in terms of megapixels, though.
Really? I didn't know that...Interesting. :scratch:
interesting...and weird lol
