HERO 5 Black - JPG Files are larger than the GPR Files?

All of my GPR (Raw) files on my HERO 5 Black are smaller than the Jpgs that are also produced.

 

This can't be right can it?

 

Hope someone can advise.

Re: HERO 5 Black - JPG Files are larger than the GPR Files?

I agree the RAW file should be uncompressed and contain a lot more data. I was surprised that it is smaller than a jpg file.
