We are not pixel peeping. It was just for fun, but also to show that the difference is small.

I am pixel peeper and proud to admit it! :)

I admit that I am probably never going to make prints larger than 8.5" x 11". But w/o pixel peeping, I don't see how else I can determine the quality of images from a camera. I see photos posted here, in DPr-----, and in other forums where people are commenting on the great quality of the photos from certain cameras. Problem is, almost all photos look great at 1024x768. So I can take photos from my old school Canon Digital Elph, and they would still look great at 1024x768. Hence the need (or my need) to look at the photos in their full size.

Maybe I'll write a book called the "Memoirs of a Pixel Peeper"! :o

Are you selling T-shirts :" I am a pixel peeper !"

That would be hilarious to see wowan reacts thinking it's an sexual innuendos. I had a Xbox live t-shirt that said : I got great hands and woman would stop and turn around all the time.

LOL!!! Somehow, the reaction that I get from "I am a pixel peeper" might not be quite as positive as "I have great hands"!!!

I was in a shop last friday, checking the E30 and E620
This is with the E30 at iso 1600 and 50 mm lens at F2

[quote="Hans"]So who was right? It's actually not that difficult. idavis was right.
Left top is the pic with the largest magnification and there is just a little more detail, so that must be the highest resolution as you can expect from a 15 MP camera.
Bottom left has the smallest magnification and the detail seems just a little less then the others, so it must be the E3 (10 MP).
You may expect the color of both Olympus camera's to be similar, so top right should be the E30.
Finally the the remaining one should be the D90.


Well Hans.....you can certify me blind anytime....only one I got correct is the E30, which I own.....I hate tests :evil:
