The photos here are only 0.7 megapixel, is the Nikon Coolpic a sub-megapixel camera? You can put full-res here, the site scales the photos for you. Even if there is a reason for not full res, 0.7 meg. is kinda small… It is hard to see things like gill attachment and veils at this low res.

But I’m just a pixel whore really, I’ll always want more…

ah Doug, I have spoiled you with all of those pixels…

no, I did NOT take my SLR into the woods with me. I made that mistake in the SE last year, in a dripping damp woods, and it cost me big-time. I used my little Nikon Coolpix for all of the in situ shots, but had the SLR back at the lodge just in case. It rained a bit just about every day. No time to set up a tripod, either…too many damn wonderful things to capture!

I never put up a full res photo here, regardless…if you want bigger, i can send it to you privately. And how bout that green gilled critter, eh?

Small Images?

Why so small? What happened to your camera, that it is taking such small images now? This one is less than a magepixel in size, why so small?
