    Image size on the D4?! HELPPPPPPP

    So I just purchased a D4 and took it out on a session. Loved it. LOVED IT. I was using a D7100..... whoa big difference. So I imported through lightroom, made some color adjustments and exported with my same file settings (100% quality 350 dpi) My file inside lightroom was 4928x3280, I checked it on camera, same size. However, when I exported via lightroom, my files were half the size as my D7100 were producing. My average size on the D7100 was around 11-13MB and my D4 exported at roughly 4-6MB. I spent 2 hours on the phone with Nikon with no answer... I was hoping someone who actually shoots with a D4 can help me?! Thanks you thank you xoxo

    The difference is in the megapixels of each camera, the D7100 is 24MP the D4 is 16MP. So alot less data stored in a D4 Raw image file.

    How will that effect my print quality? Can I still print large pieces without pixilation?

    So long as you do not go too big it will not be an issue.

    If you export at 100% quality, don't limit long or short edge lengths and go 300dpi you can print massive. I have a 6' x 4' canvas on my wall. Looks awesome.

    How big are the files you are exporting Kevy? I'm getting around 4-5MB, does that sound right? I probably would not be as concerned if I didn't purchase refurbished... I have a wedding Thursday and want to make sure I'm good to go.

    Mine are usually around the 9 to 13mb

    I use Lightroom to export as 100% quality jpg.

    I shoot RAW and export as JPG.

    According to the manual-- a large RAW file should yield and image 4928x3280 in size. In camera, that's what I have. In lightroom, that's what I have. However when I export my files are only 3-5MB in size. I am exporting at 100% quality and 350dpi.... HELPPP!!!
