Resolution and Megapixels – how to make your own D300x

I’ve been discussing some issues with the recent release of a new Sigma camera with some photographer friends of mine.   This new Sigma claims a resolution roughly 3 times it’s apparent sensor size, and some people are crying foul over this practice.  This is largely the same argument that’s […]
