Bitrate And Camera Quality

Hey folks,

I noticed that you can set multiple parameters that effect camera performance.

Bitrate, compression, quality

For bitrate, just to confirm, you are setting the maximum bitrate, lets say 8Mbps, that's going to basically say the file size for the recordings are going to be no larger than 8Mbps no matter what. If you need to drop frames, or compression then that will be done in order to retain the 8Mbps file size -- Correct?

I've noticed you can set Bitrate when it's H.264, but that option seems to go away when it's MJPEG -- Why?

Does quality setting generally mean the amount of compression that is going to be applied? If so, why don't manufactures just say compression/quantization or whatever it's actually using instead of using the term quality?

Thanks!!!
