Agreed.....but a 100% sample might be of value for someone really trying to see the point being made. And,surpisingly , I have now come to the point where I do think it is a superior technology where the very highest result are required.......2 Years ago I wouldn't have said that, (but I would have suspected it).

I agree with you too, but a 100% sample would weigh over 300 megs. (opened jpg)
It'd take you a month to download it.

There was an interesting article is either Rangefinder or Professional Photographer Magazine this month.
A guy does a head to head with a 6x7 film camera and a Canon 1DS MarkIII (I think).
If someone read this article, help me out. Which mag was it?

I was surprised to see the digital camera get as close to film as it did regarding resolution.

lol....yeah....I meant a small portion of the image @ 300 ppi with a small jpg of the whole thing to show the portion under discussion.....there was a comparison last year between a 5D and 4x5 Velvia, but I've lost the link. This months Rangefinder hasn't come yet, but I'll look when it does...cheers...Bob

I'd love to, but we don't use Photoshop to set the resolution. We allow the RIP software running the Theta printer at the lab to set the print resolution.
The RIP software running the Theta will create a higher quality print than $600 Photoshop.

It's impossible to post the print clip without access to the printer prepped RIP file.

In other words, we do not have access to that printer prepped file.
The RIP sets the print resolution on the lab end.

Hmmmm once again! Mark, I see no proof of anything in the excellent images you posted other than you do good work. Bob I disagree with you on the retouching as I do with Mark's comments, Continue to believe what you both want to believe and I will stand by my statements. I apologize to both of you, I certainly did not intend to make waves in your little pond, I'll try hard not to do so in the future. I will read the posts only but not comment on them. I will however continue to chuckle at mark's list of his worldly accomplishments, but most egotistical people simply have to tell the world just how good they are, and this is an excellent tailor made place to do so.

In closing, I wll give some more good advice, "take the lens cap off first,
then make the exposure"

bye now,
Old Coyote

There's a difference between opinion and fact.

The facts are that it is possible to get large, top quality large images from digital, and sell them to carriage trade clientele. We do it daily.
As I stated before, it's all in how you handle the file.

My education hasn't a thing to do with this discussion. I'm going to politely ask you to stay on topic in future posts.

Let's keep this discussion on topic. I appreciate the activity in the Medium/Large format forum, but keep it civil!

The problem is that this text appears beneath every post Mark makes:

Quote:
Cr. Photog. PPA Certified
F-TPPA, F-SPPPA, CBM
2007 PPA Photographer of the Year
This makes it inherently part of the discussion, whether its intentional, or not. I suggest a smaller font size so it isn't as prevalent.

I think a member's signature is their own affair really. Mark's obviously keen to show his credentials. People can take it for what it is. I've seen it get people's backs up in the past, and it is a bit of a red flag to a bull for some people but it is what it is and Mark makes his living doing this photography stuff so no reason why he can't show that. It's not something anyone should be ashamed of is it?

John,
I did not realize the font size option was there, I had no idea. I guess the original size text was the default?
I certainly didn't make it that big purposely.

I never said I was anything.
Being educated doesn't make you a great, or even average photographer. The level of your work will decide that.
