A couple of days ago I made a bold statement in regard to the negatives of some of my images. I’ve posted some photo’s taken with a handmade camera that uses over sized 120 film. There is a small detail in the sky that is actually a helicopter towing a huge flag. Because the negative is so large and so fine, I have boldly stated that it is the equivelent of around 250 to 300 megapixels. And because the negative is so big and the film used was so fine this image and its companions will enlagre up to huge mural size prints with no loss of quality.
So what do people think of this bold assertion? How do others rate their negatives in terms of megapixels? I manage a small analouge darkroom at a regional university and tell the students that a 35mm analouge neg is the equivelent to about 90 meg and a standard 120 or medium format negative is equivelent to about 200 meg. What do others think? Here is the link to my Redfern Panorama
And here is a thumbnail of the little cameras that took these photos.
