A coffee break discussion prompted the following question:
How many pixels would a file contain if an 8x10 digital back were available (col or or B/W)?
Seems there was a National Public Radio story that a consumer camera available in 2001 will have a 10 megapixel chip as standard equipment, rendering images eq ual to any film-based effort. I was arguing that in a 1/15th of a second, an 8x1 0 piece of film can collect huge amounts of "pixel" information, probably dwarfi ng 10 megapixels. Anybody know?
Thanks in advance - Bill
