    4gigs of ram? 09:37ish, is that true?! Would be amazing if it is!

    Ah, 4 gigs of disk that should be. Sorry!

    He meant the SSD. It’s divided in 2 GB + 2 GB too. It has half a gig of ram if I recall correctly. A full gigabyte wouldn’t hurt; maybe it could record video at the same time as running the browser then.

    I have a Compal MID SFR Mi PC. The 3MP pictures I captured are highly compressed. The file size is typically 125KBytes. Which is 48:1 compression. When you zoom in on the pictures the JPEG blocks are obvious.

    I cannot find a setting where the JPEG compression setting can be changed.

    You did some image quality testing. What JPEG compression ratios did you get? Do you see these JPEG blocks in your images? Can you send me a picture that is a good example of the lowest compression and best image quality?

    It may be that the SW is old on my device. Where can I go to down load the latest SW?
