I wonder if by large format they mean 4x5 or 8x10. Then the irony of course is that they will scan that 8x10 to make a 16x20 inkjet print. If Adams was around, he would be using a digital back, shoot color and stitch a few frames to make a large high resolution print.It's like asking a writer if he is skilled in using India ink and a quill to write on a parchment scroll. Yes they are archival and will last a long time and no computer is required to read the file, but in the end, it's the content that counts. There are other ways to weed out the amateurs among the applicants. Adams had a vision of what his final print needed to look like, hence the zone system. Three separate exposures on 9 plates, three developing baths and hours in the darkroom. He was creating what was not there. Conveying the size of a 2000ft granite rock on a 16x20 print. the fact that they mentioned the draft registration goes to show that someone is copying and pasting to post the job opening.
Joas Souza: I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IS HAS ONLY 18MP. EVERYBODY WAS EXPECTING 32MP. WELL, NIKON STILL AHEAD, UNFORTUNATELY.
It's the quality and size of the pixel not the quantity. I have the 1Ds MK II, 16.7 MP. Since march of 2005, I may have used each image to it's full size, 1% of the time. To this day, when processed properly from RAW, I can beat any new 18 and 20 MP image, especially at 1600 and 3200 ASA. If you are doing landscape photography, there are cameras for that. Also, these sensors are exceeding the limits of the optics. That's why I am waiting for Larger sensor with less pixels for the G13.
