    Hi,

    The iPhone 4 camera is 5MP but when I take pictures they are usually just under 1MB JPEGs. I have 2 questions.

    1. Is that an accurate size of file I should be getting from a 5MP camera
    2. Although all the file sizes of pictures are similar, shouldn't they all be the same size?

    Thanks.

    Mine range between 1 and 2 MB usually, with the average being closer to 1.8ish (eye average). They won't all be the same size though.

    Hmmmm, I wonder why mine are all under 1MB.

    The average seems to be about 900KB.

    I might try a few in the great outdoors (broader and more complex images) to see if they are any larger than the ones I'm taking indoors - I can't see why it would be though...
