There are more problems with comparing the resolution of film to that of a digital sensor. One problem is that the grain that you see is in fact not the image forming element but a form of noise. The actual elements are much smaller. Also, it matters if you look at B/W film or color film; the image in B/W film is composed of silver particles, while most ...


Let me start by saying that the term "true resolution" has no set meaning. It is a term that Snapsort uses to try and simplify the meaningful detail a camera can capture. Resolution, at its most basic, is the level of granularity of detail that a camera can capture. You could have a 200 mega pixel camera, but if the image was out of focus and you only ...


They are simplifying a much more complex world. your true resolution will be a product of lens and sensor. but the lens resolution (lp/mm) will depend on its settings as well as its quality. so to do those conversions they need to make a lot of assumptions. To spread light on the complexity of resolution: First of all, MP is not a measure of resolution. It ...


Let's start with resolution, which is not the same as the sensor pixel density which is usually called resolution. To get the actual resolution of a camera and lens combination, you would photograph a resolution chart, and use the resulting image to determine how many lines can be reproduced. You would measure the resolution for primary horizontal, vertical ...


"True resolution" is a term that this particular site (snapsort.com) has made up in an attempt to account for the fact that pixel size and density play a factor as well. You can check out their whole page about it here. There is no industry standard term called 'true resolution'. They're calculating it based on the size of the Airy disk, given a maximum ...
