"Do you even have a clue what you're doing"?

"Are you blind? Look at his porch!!"
Now, you tell me, who is bigger fool? The fish playing only way he knows how, or table coach who is trying his best to either run guy off or worse yet, actually make him think about how he plays?

As it is a fact that digital cameras are comprised of miniature computers that have storage discs for retrieving images as digital information, so a certain amount of knowledge is necessary regarding digital camera disc formats. A proper understanding of disc formats of digital camera memory can help photographer or user make efficient use of device in a correct and useful fashion. This discussion is aimed at revealing these little details!
At present in among common users of digital cameras there are two main types of storage medium available nowadays. Some cameras use 1.44-MB floppy disks, which are available almost everywhere in present market trends, and some digital cameras use assorted forms of flash memory having a range of capacities covering from several megabytes to a gigabyte. The difference lies between these two types of disc formats in their capacity. Floppy disks have a fixed memory capacity that cannot be altered, and flash memory devices have capacities that keep increasing everyday. This is a kind of boon because of fact that picture-sizes are also increasing constantly with invention of higher resolution cameras that become available in markets with daily technical advancements.
The major and most popular file format available for digital cameras are TIFF and JPEG formats respectively. Looking in a little detail into these two formats, TIFF format is an uncompressed format without any alteration of image sizes and JPEG is a compressed format that does alter image size for economic use of memory for storage. Certainly, from common sense, majority of digital cameras use JPEG file format for storing images and photographs, and they even offer quality settings such as medium or high and accordingly size is altered thus providing both memory management as well as quality management of pictures.
