I think you have proven my point. I will take the case of the
Amphiprion ocellaris (clownfish). It is a nice overall picture
of the fish but look at the fish as individuals as we try to get
with our killies. The picture is ok but not sharp at all.
I think we are missing my point. The under $1000 are not equal
to the same priced film camera. I would like to see these pictures
taken with an N50.
I have a digital and is my main camera for snapshots and sceenery
pictures. On a recent trip to China I left the film camera at home
and used only the digital. There is no cost to take a picture with
the digital and many shots of the same subject can be taken.
I still stand by my statement that for close work that is required
that a film camera is still much superior. Perhaps after 50 years
in the photo hobby I am biased, or maybe I am overly critical of
pictures being sharp and have good depth of field.
