    A local usenet acquaintance was kind enough to draw this to my
    attention. My first reaction was Wow! Have a look here:

    I'm sticking to a more modest 4 megapixels for the forseeable future.

    regards Dave.

    Nice example of what can be achieved by digital, even if a few million
    dollars on the wrong side of my budget, LOL.
    What would been interesting would be if the same area of crop used to
    compare captured detail was taken from 35mm, medium and large format film,
    and included so that we could compare them to the digital detail crops.

    Just a though.

  3. If you used a poor lens, it might take a film width of slightly less than 36
    inches to achieve the same resolution at 50 lpmm. With a high quality lens
    you might be able to do it with a sheet of about 16 or 17 inches.

    Now that's the horizontal resolution. The vertical is less demanding and it
    might only need to be 8 to 16 inches or so.
