Question about Epson PhotoPC 3100Z Digital Camera
What is the image quality of the 3100z's JPEG format? I've read that the camera applies stronger compression than other brands' super-fine options and I'm concerned about not having a good alternative to TIFFs when doing routine shooting. How happy are you with the detail and amount of muddying that the finest JPEG setting on this camera produces? Would anyone care to compare it to, say, Canon's excellent low-compression JPEGs? Any info or opinions are welcome. I like the strong feature set of the 3100z but don't want a camera that will force me to shoot only TIFFs to get solid, flexible images.

Believe me! This camera is really excellent, may be due to the excellent colour management experience of EPSON.
Although the compression is high for 3.3 MegaPixels (I always use the "Standard Compression" which means each photo needs only 500 KB).
To save space, I shoot about 300 photos in 128 MB and do NOT find any difference for the "Low Compression" option when developing a photo.
In fact, my other DC Nikon CoolPix E995 produces larger photo sizes but are rubbish, and not environmentally friendly - because wasting the hard-drive memory!

Thanks for your responses, folks. From the sound of it some of the web site reviewers are worried more about the smaller JPEG file size than actual distortion of the images. I've yet to read a review that actually complained about the image quality.

I don't think you will find any major difference in quality with Epson's 3000 or 3100 compresssion compared to Canon's. I use the 3000z and shoot in low compression giving a file size about 850k - 1000k.
