Except that there isn't enough pixels in this image to make a decent print of any reasonable size. I would bet that a full frame pinhead shot @ low ISO and 8x10" would beat that little low pixel image uprezzed to 8x10. It's not a photograph until it's printed.

I think a true definition of pinhead sensor needs to be made. For me it's any sensor smaller than the 2x 4/3 sensor. By that definition, I think a 2/3" or 1" cam in raw at low ISO could do this in a not so distant future, they are already close in the case of the X10, RX-100 and Nikon 1 series.

It only took me 2 minutes of post processing..... topaz denoise ..... upped the contrast a little bit and played with the curves slightly... then added a bit of USM. Out of respect for the owner of that image.... I will not post the result. But trust me... you WOULD get an 8x10 and most people would be hard pressed to tell it from a full frame shot.

Nikon AF - One Shot ..... One Kill

Nah it's a little ragged and to begin with. Add in the artifacting of up rezzing that to 8x10" @ 300dpi and it wouldn't be as good. I worked in a pro lab for a long time, trust me a FF XS1 shot at 8x10 would smoke this crop outputted at 8x10. I will say it would look pretty good considering the file size though and it is impressive considering.
