Not really an APUG topic, but among other problems with the digital/analog comparison made above, you can't just look at the Leica M and conclude there digital has nothing to offer. Pros ain't using those. Nikon and Canon are making digital cameras that are producing cleaner and cleaner images at ridiculously high sensitivities. Shooting Delta 3200 at 3200, let alone 6400, is a significant push which will increases graininess. As an aside, try any of this in Rodinal and graininess will be higher.
I'm an analog guy all the way, but at this point we can't use resolution and graininess (not quite the same as digital noise anyway) to support any view analog is "superior" to digital in terms of image quality. Those days are long gone, I'm afraid. Digital crushes analog when it comes to image quality at high sensitivities.
i don't think you would have any problem enlarging any film to that size.
you can probably increase your iso even higher by hypering it in h2o2
it isn't hard to enlarge anything after it has been electrified,
i have some 8mm film stills for sale in a gallery and they are as big or bigger than you asked about ...
swiss lenses make a difference, not that cheap german glass
Thanks for the extra link John,now I've got another argument to follow!
pleasure is all mine alan :)
