Just as an aside.... Billboards are printed at very low resolution because the viewing distance is very far away.
Exactly. This should help explain it further . . .

I understand about billboards, but none of the galleries i normally visit are that spacious. Large prints, e.g. 48 to 60 inches, just look fuzzy in many galleries if they aren't displayed with some distance. So i think it makes sense to make even moderately large prints with high resolution - unless that is technically not feasible.

Its fun to make a really large print, but I steer away from it. I find large prints, at least my large prints hard to sell. Not every customer has that kind of room, and lots of customers get more picky when the size goes up, regards subject matter. If you don't sell it - than you're stuck with storing or displaying it yourself - which might not be unpleasant

Not just photographic prints. Paintings. Try viewing a Turner at the Tate up close. Then stand back 4 metres.

What would be the effective resolution of a Seurat? 1MP?




I think he did OK. One of the cool things about that painting is how it works it's magic at any distance, and possibly even more close-up.

I don't know Jay. There's too much depth of field in that image and way too much noise in the shadows.

For all that depth of field it sure is flat.

I was surprised to read this assessment from Mike Johnstone, Online Photographer, The Online Photographer
Don't read the thread, but here is my humble opinion ...

FF+ (SLR, mirrorless, medium format) won't die out but become the high end niche of photography. Much like the high end audio niche.

Main stream will turn to fixed lens cameras (RX100 style) and lens array mobile phones.

However, I see a chance for interchangeable lens cameras with sensors smaller than 135 to die out. Talking about a 20 years+ time frame here ...

There's been quite a bit of color treatment and post. Also, remember the size of the print: 81.7 in 121.25 in. We're talking 25+ MP and probably medium format. Better pick up that 645z.
