Canon 6D shooting far too small jpeg image files

Canon 6D only recently started shooting incredibly small image files. When set to large jpeg, which should produce 20MB files, the results are now between 4MB and 5MB image files. Medium and small image jpeg settings are also a lot smaller than what they should be. The problem is not affecting RAW settings.

I have formatted the SD card and reset the camera settings without any luck.

Has anyone experienced this/ have any advice?

Not that I shoot jpg, but have you ever got 20 MB jpg from your 6D ever? Maybe at highest ISO in a dark place.

Large fine won't produce that big of a file. RAW yes but not in a jpg. Re check your settings & what the manual says the file size would be for that setting.

Are you going by the "size" of the sensor? i.e., a "20 MP camera"? If so, that has nothing to do with the JPEG file size because of compression.
