View Full Version : Sony HX9V photos too compressed

25-12-11, 02:49 PM

I have just bought this camera but am considering returning it, because when I download the photos onto the computer, using the supplied PMB software, the resulting images are way too compressed, down to around 159 or so Kb, yes, KB, per photo. Neither the manual nor the software help addresses how to download the photos without this level of compression.

And how about this/ I wrote to Sony asking for help and they wanted 16 to answer the question!

Does anyone have this camera and know how to download the photos , via a USB cable, with just the usual Jpeg compression, so say should be 5Mb per photo (just comparing to my iPhone here, which is 5MP and downloads at around 2.8MB per photo).

I regret not buying a camera which downloaded in RAW, but am still within the cooling off period so thinking of returning this camera.

I would look at what size you are shooting at you may have to increase the quality of the picture you are taking
