I have just purchased a 7D body and was out experimenting with it just taking shots of parks, trees, landscapes etc.
I was quite astonished at the image size I have been getting, in the region of 25Mbyte, the same as my 5D MK II. So I decided to take the same shot with both cameras/lens and it confirmed they are very similar sizes. Considering the difference in the 7D and 5D MK II camera sensors 18Mp and 21Mp respectively.
Both cameras are set up for RAW only images, (not sRAW or mRAW).
The image size is from the camera info and also from PS5/Camera Raw.
Most of the literature and 7D videos I have seen suggest 18Mbyte images so just wondered why I am getting such high image size from a smaller sensor.
