We keep characterizing an 1800x1200 image as small. This size image, viewed on my monitor, is like holding up a 13x19 paper print 18" away or closer. That's really quite large enough to see these "minute" differences quite readily.

'Small' as in small amount of data. Whilst the image on your screen is the same size as a 13x19 print, it is missing most of the print's detail.

These expensive high megapixel cameras are total overkill for your stated application.

Data/detail really does get thrown away when you downsample an image.
