AuthorSubject: Quality trade-offs in moving from slides to 6MP digital capture   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Richard Marcellus
Posted on Tue Feb 10, 2004 1:04 PM

I am strongly leaning towards giving up shooting slides and getting a 6MP DSLR (probably a D70). From a workflow perspective digital capture looks far more appealing to me (and I am getting really sick of scanning slides). The exposure advantage with instant histograms is also a big selling point for me.

My only concern, is that 6MP from a $1-1.5K prosumer DSLR won't have the image quality of a scanned slide with 11-12MP. My relatively uninformed assumptions are that shadow detail will be better with the digital capture (probably a lot better than I get scanning Velvia with a mid-range Nikon IV ED scanner) and there will be less noise/grain with digital than Velvia. However, I am wondering what to expect with enlargements. At small sizes (i.e. 6MP will give me a 5.5" x 8.3" print at 360dpi) I don't think that I will miss slides, but when I want to print larger than this (8x12 or 10x15) will the lower resolution of the digital compared to the scanned slide result in a less satisfying print?

I mostly shoot landscapes and wildlife.

Thanks for any comments,

Richard
