Year 2000: 2 Mpix Does it for Anthony - Photography

Oh, this just gets better. Here's the trajectory of maniac's "optimal" number of pixels over time: 1997: whatever a DCS-50 or DCS-120 digicam gets 1999: 6 Mpix is the limit of human vision 2000: 2 Mpix is "sufficient for many purposes," but 8 Mpix ideal for 13x19" print on Epson 2003: getting by with 80 Mpix scanning Hassy images on an LS-8000; EOS-1Ds markedly inferior to scanned film. rafe b. http://www.terrapinphoto.com ---------------------- From: "Anthony" <com> Subject: Re: How many pixels for 11 x 13 prints?

    Default Year 2000: 2 Mpix Does it for Anthony

    Oh, this just gets better.

    Here's the trajectory of maniac's "optimal"
    number of pixels over time:

    1997: whatever a DCS-50 or DCS-120 digicam gets

    1999: 6 Mpix is the limit of human vision

    2000: 2 Mpix is "sufficient for many purposes," but
    8 Mpix ideal for 13x19" print on Epson

    2003: getting by with 80 Mpix scanning Hassy
    images on an LS-8000; EOS-1Ds
    markedly inferior to scanned film.

    The optimum for an Epson 1200 would be 3120 by 2640 pixels, so 2
    megapixels would be only one quarter of the required resolution.
    However, this assumes a viewing distance of one foot or less, which
    would be unusual for an 11x13-inch print. In practice, 2 megapixels
    may be sufficient for many purposes.

    Yuck.
     

    Well, within a reasonable margin of it at normal print sizes, certainly.
     

    Sounds reasonable.

    Beautiful. Truly beautiful.

    I killfiled mxmania a couple years ago because he was nothing but a PITA
    troll. No w I find you trolling on the subject of mxmania - so I have to
    conclude you are the same sort of dead weight. Hail and farewell - don't
    write if you get work.

    According to you, everyone is a troll and 98% of all posters have been
    killfiled by you. Of course, your contributions to the Newsgroups consist
    mainly of your killfile announcements.

    Personally, I'd rather read on-topic posts by trolls than another one of your
    stupid killfile declarations. Why do you feel it is necessary to announce every
    addition to your killfile?
    Oops, I forgot .... I'm killfiled!
    Nevermind.

    How does one "slip out" of a killfile?
    You know, Spadorko, you're more full of than a Christmas turkey.

    Hey I know that is an old expression but with this Salmonella thing going
    around...

    I mean we use Pepperidge Farm around here.
