Re: There is a resized comparison

It does seem to me that this sort of comparison, although how it is done is open to debate, is more real world than zooming in to an equivalent number of pixels, that is decisions about how big to print are not dictated by the pixel count of the sensor, rather the size of the picture or paper have , Therefore for most this would be scaled to say A3.

My contribution to the sensor size / pixel density debate, its about a trade off, the bigger the pixel the greater the information in the light to dark domain, the higher the pixel density the greater the information in the resolution domain, the two are antagonistic, to improve both. You would have to increase the size of the sensor or the efficacy of the photosensitive elements of the device.
