Wawa Posted June 21, 2016 Share Posted June 21, 2016 Currently Alamy minimum file size requirement is 17MB JPEGs, but I was wondering what happens to photos made from lower res cameras from a few years back. About 10-15 years ago, the top of the line Nikon (The D1H, which was a 2.7MB camera) produced a 7MB JPEG file. Just wondering what happens to all those older images that fall below the current requirement? My current camera gives me a 45MB file, well over the minimum required file size but I would like to keep future images competitive and "on the market" as long as possible. Today, Nikon's D810 is a 36M camera and I believe the latest monster file Canon is a 50MB camera, but 10-15 years from now we'll probably be able to get that from our cell phone cameras. Should we shoot with the largest file sized cameras available today to increase image longevity? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
