I read a comment somewhere that when you shrink a super high resolution image down to a smaller one it will look better than one made with a smaller sensor. (say a medium format vs small format film parallel in same print size)
Anyone care to comment?
The driver for me is that most of my clients do not necessarily require all 60 megapixels so if I am prepared to shrink my images, does that pick up the slack where a lens is not as sharp at pixel level? (Please don't shoot me for willing to compromise the pursuit of utmost pixel level perfection in this forum )
In real life translation, I am looking at lens choices for the Phase One 645 DF+ and am wondering the impact of image size reduction in the overall equation comparing newest lenses with older (say latest Phase One or SK lenses vs. older Mamiya M645 N lenses) and whether I can get away with softer lenses with this.
As a side note I observed a photographer who provides low res images in the format of 30 dpi but at 8000 pixels. I take it this is intentional but what is the benefit here?
