Photographer Michael Reichmann compared a $40,000 Phase One / Hasselblad 39 megapixel system with a 15 megapixel / $500 Canon G10 pocket camera.
The results of his test are remarkable because most viewers were unable to find much of a distinguishing difference when printed 13X19, or when viewed side by side on his 30 inch monitor.
I am not one to generally compare pixels and equipment, but in this instance we are talking about a $39,500 difference in equipment, and yet both cameras were able to produce superb results at a size that would be suitable for most purposes (yes - even billboards).
Wow. I love it when technology evens the playing field.
