We’re using a 42 MP camera (Sony RXIR II) for image acquisition. The resulting images are obviously pretty large and processing times are tremendous. I’m searching for a good balance between result quality and processing times.
Would you recommend using normal, fine or extra fine image compression (JPG)? How is the result quality and the processing time typically affected by the different compression rates?
To speed up the process I’m considering changing the camera settings from 42 MP to 18 MP and use extra fine compression. Do I have to expect a huge quality loss of the results, or does it only affect the GSD?
