    Very bad ass. Film is to digital files what LPs are to CDs.

    I think he is disagreeing with your premise. LPs contain about 85% more information than CDs so are actually higher fidelity than CDs.

    Same for film and digital. A film contains more light bandwidth than digital.

    Also, the information is on a nice smooth curve, rather than the stair-step kind of curve, if that makes sense. I forget the proper terminology. ANywho, I would Rep ya but I gotta "Spread it around"...

    I bet 90% of the people on this site can't hear anything above 18KHz anyway. :facepalm:

    OMG :facepalm:

    No fucking way in 100 million years you could see the "stair-step" between shades. I hate to break it to you all but there is a point where digital resolution is greater than what the human eye can detect.

    You're throwing that facepalm around awfully freely, mister.

    I run a low-pass filter on all my MP3's at around 17-18 since I know for a fact I can't hear it anyway and it saves me a ton of space.

    You can't buy a commercial camera with a sensor like that. It may exist in a lab or some lab equipment but not something that the regular joe would buy.
