The Great 14MP Shootout - Sigma SD14 vs Kodak 14nx
What am I looking at, here?
The following crops are 400 x 400px crops from 240ppi flatbed scans of 24 x 16 inch Lightjet prints. The crops represent an area from the print that is approximately 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches as viewed with the naked eye.
At typical screen resolutions, you will be viewing these 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch crops at a magnification of about x2 to x3. In other words, similar to examining a 24 x 16 inch print with a low power loupe.
The first image of each set is an overview of the entire print marked with the approximate location of the crop.
The prints were supplied unmarked, so I have no idea which of each pair was shot on the SD14 and which on the 14nx - a true double blind test!
Perhaps you'd like to guess?
