Hey guys, I dumped m43 about a month or two ago now as i bought myself the Sony A7 and the Ricoh GR in my front pocket. But, that doesnt mean, I love and loved m43 dearly. more now than ever that im back with FF and figuring out my exposure and aperture is totally different. but that a different story. I got contacted by a client saying that they wanted to buy one of my images for their office. Which is always awesome news to get right?, but the truth was that they didnt want an A3 (11x17in), nor A2 (24x17in) nor A0 (48 x 33in) print, they wanted a 2.3 x 2.5 meters (7.5 x 8.2 f ) !!! Till here everything sounds amazing!, but when i started sweating was when they told me the image they wanted. View attachment 332216 Daily routine by Chris Leskovsek, on Flickr They picked this shot of auckland, that i took over the past winter with the OMD EM5 and the P25. I know, and we all know that every format has its limit, and m43 pretty much limits at an A2 or A1 size prints, after that, you can tell the difference in between m43 and FF for example. So on top of all this, this images was shot on a dark evening at iso1600, that also explains the motion blur in the image right?. anyway, I prepared the file and sent it over, without telling the client nor the printer. Just sent a 300dpi tiff file until i got a call from the client, saying that the print went up the day before and inviting me to go check it out. well... this is what i faced myself when i walked into the agency. They even cropped the file!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!! but that photo doesnt really show the size of the print, so while i was shooting, one of their employees came out of the door... hahah funny face, i know, but she can give you a real perspective on how huge the print is. And now, for all the sceptical people and hardcore gear heads, heres a close up of the print details to see the real deal. the grain!. Client, is absolutely happy with the print, and me too. This came as a total surprise. Ive always preached and said that m43 was 'good enough' for most people. I also truly believe that a photo is not a photo until is printed. Would FF have done better in this case?, I expect so, would have Medium format have done better?, OBVIOUSLY. But theres one thing FF and or MF have not done in this case, and that is, i most probably would have not taken this photo, because they dont fit in my everyday bag, and even if they did, i wouldnt even bothered to take the camera of the bag in the first place to take this shot, as it was raning, and i was grabbing my umbrella, and needed a 'one hand operation' type of camera, that they are not. So to me, this was another lesson. 'live and learn'. Internet forums, full of 400% zoom pixel peeper inspectors, are preaching only hypothesis to me with all their critics to maximum resolutions, sensors, etc, cause in real life, im getting impressive results from something im supposed not, a 'toy format'. So, I just wanted to share this experience with you guys. as im blown away about technology nowadays. Now I do really 'know' what 'good enough iq' is to me. hope you have a merry christmas and happy holidays!
