"lossiness" of flashpixgreenspun.com : LUSENET : FlashPix Format : One Thread
I am interested in buying a Kodak dc265. It saves in JPEG and flashpix. I need exceptionally good resolution which is why I am interested in a camera that takes a 1.5 megapixel picture, but I can find no information on how lossy the fpx format is. Does anyone know? Thank you.

The FPX format that Kodak Digital Camera uses lossy compression. The quality of compression is similar to that of the JPEG equivalent (10:1 I think).

In most cases the flashpix unit of a digital camera uses the JPEG unit to compress the tile data in the flashpix file, so the compression rate is allways the same in JPEG and FlashPix...
