different KBs

Posted by clairdo2 (My Page) on

why is it that the pics I take with the same camera at the same time have different KB's. I have one that is only 64.4 and the others go up to 721.I don't think any setting was changed when I took the pictures.

RE: different KBs

I think it might have to do with auto settings...It adjusts for whatever your taking a picture of. Not sure but that's my guess...

RE: different KBs

KB's in the same size pix are dependent on the substance of the scene. A far off mountain scene with few colors will not use as many bites as a closeup of a boquet of different colored flowers. This caused me a problem in understanding the WHY of it untill I purposely made a series of photos using the same settings but with more colors in the scenes and using varying focus.
