digital camera record modes

Predetermined quality settings for recording JPEG images in some digital cameras. JPEG images may be compressed at various quality levels, and the record modes are preset compression ratios for one or more resolutions. From low to high, they are "standard quality" (SQ), "high quality" (HQ) and "super high quality" (SHQ).

Some cameras may use these modes for TIFF images as well, in which case the mode refers only to resolution, not compression. These modes are not standard and represent different settings from camera to camera, and they may not be used at all. Following is an example of the modes from one camera, which also uses them for setting movie resolution and frame rate. See JPEG and digital camera.

The camera can utilise frame rates from one to 60fps in full-res record modes, and you can record up to 120fps using the 4K half-size RAW settings.
Thirty-two different record modes are available depending on the quality level desired.
The DVDR80 also offers exceptional picture quality in long record modes. This is also a great model to have for the office to burn training or promotional videos because of its long list of features and user-friendliness.
The robot operating system features menu-driven selection of robot gains, Cartesian trajectory, and teach, learn, and record modes. It includes an interrupt-driven PID servo control routine and real-time trajectory generator.
