High-speed vs Normal Drive Mode Image Quality

The following samples illustrate the difference in image quality between normal drive mode and both high-speed modes.

In Hi1 mode, images can be captured at a maximum resolution of SQ1 and although High quality (low compression) is the default in the Image Quality menu, the camera appears to be recording at Normal quality.
