    Which argument was that as I wasn't aware of it.
    For you maybe but most people, well humans anyway, have abilities that mean they can decode such things, obviously beyond you it seems.
    No I type with my fingers and as for spelling have you not noticed that I don't have an "e" in my whisky.

    But then I've never liked JD (unless mixed with cola), Jim Beam is OK and Rebel Yell IIRC. Jamersons gives me a headeache, I quite like Powers whiskey.
    I haven't tried all whisky's with or without e's but do prefer the scotish ones.
    Isle of Jura being one of my favoitites but havent brought any in 10 years.
    The last drink I have was one 500ml bottle of spitfire ale last saturday.
    Haven't had an alcoholic drink since, which isn't unusual.
    My next alcholic drink is shedulaed for Friday around 9pm.

    The one you were in reference to when you quoted me above.
    Very few can decode hieroglyphs, Tipsy Dave.

    Of course I can't. My camera doesn't have that capability.

    Even if the camera had that capability, and I could use it, I would
    choose not to do so.

    I can see pixels on my screen if I get up real close but it's not
    meant to be viewed that way. Similarly I can see pixels on my iPad if
    I use a magnifying glass. But it's not meant to be used that way
    either.
    Whatever. Gaming or not, you have accepted my point.

    It is true that the original Macintosh had a 72 ppi screen, but it isn't
    true that the "Microsoft standard" was 96 ppi, because Microsoft sold no
    displays (as far as I know.[/QUOTE]

    True, but they displayed their output on screens sold by other people.
    Micosoft designed their standard fonts around a hypothetical screen of
    96ppi. I believe they may have now gone to 120ppi but I don't really
    know.
    The latter.
    It doesn't have 24" screens.

    it doesn't have to be in the camera. it could run on the computer.

    nikon bss is just one example of how it could be done. it's not the
    only way.
    that's fine. nobody said it has to always be used in all situations,
    without any way to configure it to the user's preferences.

    you don't have to get real close to see pixelization on a non-retina
    display. that's the point. they are much sharper.

    The original discussion was about an 'in camera' function.

    dunno but pretty much everyone who uses a retina display notices a
    difference, especially when they go back to the older non-retina
    display.

    no it wasn't.

    i gave an example of an in-camera implementation but it's not the only
    one.

    True. But your original reference was to an 'in camera' function and
    so too was subsequent discussion. Don't remember somebody making
    specific reference to the deletion of 'faulty' images by the camera
    before the photographer had even seen them?

    I go from an iPad to a matte 24" colour calibrated 1920 x 1200. Apart
    from PPI there are too many other differences to enable me to select
    one to explain why the two look different.

    I did.
    My Nikon CP-5700 had a "best shot selector" (BSS) feature. With BSS on
    the camera takes pictures as long as the shutter-release button is held
    down, to a maximum of 10. The sharpest of these 10 (highest level of
    detail) is saved to the memory card. Flash is turned off, and focus,
    exposure, and white balance is determined by the first shot in the
    series. So the shooter never gets to see any of the rejected 9 shots.

    Did you intend to comment, or did you just have a spontaneous click on
    the send button?

    It must have been the latter. I was not even aware that I had cited
    your article to enable me to respond to it.

    As the evening merges into night, the less than perfect woman at the
    other end of the bar becomes more desirable.

    Similarly with digital images.
