i think Med format is now 45mb so it would be half as good at resolving detail .
happy to be put right though
Yeah, I remember the Hassy 39 MP a few years back. But of course there are backs in between 16-45MP and I imagine med format backs will keep growing. 22MP is still a large amount of info to capture. And of course the larger the file, the more HD space, RAM, and faster processor is needed to tweak RAW files. One client sent over 135 RAW 5D images for me to tweak and archive and it took my iBook G4 about 20 minutes of "listing" before I could open
I think I read an article in Popular Science that eventually we will be seeing 200MP cameras. Imagine opening up 100 200MP RAW files, definitely need a Cray super computer and Photoshop CS 25 version haha, and the patience of Job
And I shoot a lot of jewelry with a 30D and I showed some RAW files to a journeyman pre-press guy I know and he said he could make IRIS prints up to 18x24 and does it all the time. The quality his shop can get even from 8-10 RAW MP can be really fine
I think what I would like to find out is, could the 1Ds be enough resolution for high end press and magazines like Vogue and be almost comparable to med format
