Even as I finished the book, I realized that parts of it were going out of date before it was even printed. So the major objective of this page will be to provide information that updates, corrects, or expands upon the current edition.
Expect to see this area expand over the next few weeks. In the mean time:
Feb 23: The cranky camera guy says:
A recent report on CNET about the future of Digital Camera and the impact of the lastest 2 Mega pixel cameras included the following comment:
"Cameras offering over 1.3 million pixels offer close to the same resolution of traditional cameras", according to Holec [a digital imaging analyst at ARS.]
I'm as excited about the quality of these new cameras as the
next guy, but that comment is carrying things a little too
far. These new cameras with "over 1.3 million pixels" are
producing images up to about 1600 x 1200. A "traditional"
35mm camera can produce images at 3072 by 2048 (that's over
6 million pixels.)
*The title wasn't my idea.
