Question:
What exactly do "the number of recorded pixels" & "quality" mean?

Answer:
1. The number of recorded pixels:

"The number of recorded pixels" refers to the number of pixels in an image (a pixel is a cluster of dots). The larger the file size, the better the image quality when printed.

2. Quality (FINE/NORMAL/BASIC)

Photographed images are recorded in compressed form. The compression ratio used during recording can be varied, and images with a lower compression ratio have better image quality. These settings should be changed when the shot is taken according to how you intend to use the image. (i.e. E-mailed images (attachments) would normally be compressed to ensure it does not exceed the file size limitations on the receiving mailbox).
