Yes you do get fewer pictures per disk at the higher setting. I
usually get 10. That is why I have the wallet of 25 disks in my bag. I
come from a different angle than you. At the museum I did a lot of
desktop publishing, so I leave my camera on the highest setting. I can
always reduce the size of the photograph, but you can't increase the
quality from the original.
I just spent about an hour digitally "cropping" photographs (snapshots
really) of my niece's birthday party. After I cropped what I wanted, I
copied into the collage I was making. There I reduced the size of the
image to fit the space (usually by 50%) I made 4 "collages" of birthday
photographs. When this bank of thunderstorms passes I'm going to run to
run to some errands (I'm staying in the neighborhood so I know which
streets flood Fay was much kinder than Allison to Houston at least) and
drop the collages off at my sister's house as a surprise.

Subject: Re: DIGI cam THANKS / FD Mavica
The Sony FDMavica 200 is rated at 2.0 mega pixels.
I always shoot at the lowest setting 64x480 and use the
pics mostly for web pages or power point presentations.
I get 18 - 24 - 36 pics per floppy depending on the complexity
of the image I'm shooting.
It will shoot pics at 1024x768 or 1600x1200. When you use these
larger settings you get a larger image but still 72 dpi. Someone can
correct me if I'm wrong here. With the larger images you get fewer
pics per floppy so a memory stick might come in handy.
