The proof......

2 copy images of a tapestry showing difference in quality of film and direct digital captureSame lens, same lighting. We used our specialised digital capture system for the digital version and 4"x5" colour transparency drum scanned at 4000ppi. for the film version. The digital capture is at half its potential resolution. These are tiny sections cropped from an entire and much larger capture of an Egyptian tapestry sampler shown here at 3x life size.
