I know we were talking 35mm but 6x7 versus 11mp seems unthinkable.

Obviously medium format is superior to 35mm, so clearly this would be a tougher challenge for digital.

I remember you linking this before. Kinda interesting because one image I prefer the film shot, and the other I prefer the digital. The one comparing the glass skyscrapers I note the film shows the detail of cross-pieces on the panes (where the digital does not show them at all). OTOH, the shot of the "York" building it seems the digital shows better resolution. Not sure I understand why this would be.

1poorlady shot JPEG this vacation we just finished. Looks pretty good. We should probably try RAW, though I understand that you need bigger memory cards because the files are huge. I'm assuming we need Photoshop to convert to something usable (by printers like Costco, or by PC's to display, etc).

It does seem clear to me that film's days are numbered. With cameras routinely at 10MP (and I think Canon has one that is 15MP now), it seems the only advantage of film is basically gone. Using 1poorlady's D80 I don't mourn it (except that my F100 is wonderful, and still in perfect order). I look forward to blowing up one of her shots to see how it looks at 10MP at 16x20 or 24x36.
