Megapixels and Human Recognition of Resolution
Kreis, Steve
Physics Teacher, v46 n5 p304-305 May 2008
This paper tries to demonstrate that it is not reasonable to judge the quality of pictures that a camera can produce just by the number of pixels that the sensor has. It does so by trying to relate the number of pixels in a picture to the resolution that the eye can see at various distances away from prints of different size.
