Paul, But you are making the false assumption that film information is arranged in a grid fashion similar to pixels. I maintain, (and have had it confirmed by others, more technically accomplished than I) that to reproduce the the random information on film (made up of irregularly shaped grains) it takes a lot more pixels to express that information. Think about it. Harvey Ferdschneider partner, SKID Photography, NYC "Paul D.
