How often do we really enjoy our 16 M pixels?
Sep 12, 2013

I maybe alone, but I rarely print larger than A4 and when I do, those A4 prints probably represent only a tiny percentage of my collection of pictures. In other words, I rarely enjoy the full 16 M pixels of my collection of pictures.

Yes, I could crop and zoom on my computer, I could also enjoy pixels peeping at 100%, but...

Computer, "High definition" TV can display about 2 M pixels (roughly). yes, I know the next generation of ultra high def x4 and x8 TV sets will go much farther than the current resolution...

So... How often do we enjoy all those pixels? What do you think?
