I bought this camera at a quarter of its price and just noticed I seemingly can't take pictures at its full resolution (16MP). The only available options are 2 and 12MP. Any clues?

  • \$\begingroup\$ The usual advice about a hard reset and firmware check applies I think. \$\endgroup\$

Make sure that you have not selected Panorama Image Size. Most cameras will crop the full size 16mp 4:3 image to create the wide 16:9 Panorama Image which is only 12mp.
