hmmmm actually i'd wanna debate this point. I've never seen the images from a D1H b4, but simple physics tells me that you can't print 12R, but you WILL see the pixels. You can only fit so much details into 2.7 million dots/pixels. In comparison, a 6MP camera after downsizing etc, will trash the D1H for a simple printout if comparing detail, sharpness wise. 6mp is a full 100% more details.Originally Posted by jnet6
Face it, in our IT age, 4 year old technology is 4 years old. it just cannot compare with new tech (only applies to IT). It's like holding on to your Pentium 1gHz and claiming that it's comparable to the latest Mac. How many devices can you name where the cheaper models now do NOT beat the top of the range model 4 years ago?
Anyway tech is advanced enough that simple point and shoot does give excellent results in many cases. If older dSLR users wish to forever remain conceited that theirs is the best, then so be it. I'd say you've been left behind by the digital age. I'd say a current year point and shoot can generally produce better photos than a 4 yr old dSLR.
