    Primarily about "Resolution" with...

    ...lots of other interesting info along the way, with its main strength being its
    pretty clear presentation:
    https://photo.blogoverflow.com/2012/...of-resolution/

    NB: with all articles like this, where there is an element of contention in the
    subject matter, check out other sources of info. From a search on one of the
    terms - line pairs per picture height - I got this list of references:
    https://www.google.com/search?client...picture+height

    (which I haven't started going through yet after the first article )
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Just go and enjoy taking photos whatever the best way you think works. Reading articles like this do my brain in and don't help figuring how to take better photos.

    Agreed, Mark. Even though I understand it all only too well.

    For me, composition of form and colour is far more important, as is an understanding of how one's camera works, and the basics about focus and exposure (relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO).

    ...and JK didn't need to read it.

    - But the relevance of the points is elusive (to say the least)

    - Unless I didn't need to post it.

    Thanks Am, that was an interesting read, although it will take some time for this stuff to percolate through my brain and become working knowledge.

    I can see that there are real world applications for this stuff, based on my recent results of shooting distant Grebes with my 7D Mk II and EOS R - the 7D Mk II placed more pixels on the birds, hence resolved more detail and texture in the feathers.

    Cheers

    Am, I just read it, and agree with it.

    You are right - I really didn't need to read yet another 'pixels on the duck' article, but it is clearly explained why smaller sensors with similar or more megapixels can have more resolution than bigger sensors with a similar MPx count.

    Of course, a lot depends on the lens too.

    I've added it to my photography bookmarks. Thanks.
