FrontRunners: Big Shots

  • Deedra Allison

Regardless of the advanced capabilities that a digital camera offers, pixel size and resolution ultimately determine the size of the prints that it can produce. While a camera may enable you to shoot in the dark from a moving vehicle, anything larger than a 3-by-5 will look digitized if it offers only 2 or 3 megapixels. A smaller print might be fine for snapshots of the children for the scrapbook, but if you want to prominently display the people, places, and events that you capture with your camera, you need a more sophisticated device. Canon’s professional-level EOS-1Ds (www.canoneos.com) offers an astonishing 11.1 megapixels with a maximum resolution of 4,064 x 2,704, which is nearly double that of other professional cameras. This means that when you return from your next safari, you will be able to blow up the breathtaking photos of the wildlife to 24 by 36 inches, which in some cases, could be a life-size representation.
