I thought this was particularlly funny, because I'm still a little upset with the Federal Reserve Bank security guard in Cincinnati, so I refer to him as Barney Fife, since he tracked me down and actually tried to harass me about taking a photo of this rotating sculpture like thing in front of a building adjacent to the FOB and Reserve Bank. TVerBeek's translation is pretty accurate, and I found it quite funny. - [[User:Sapphire|Sapphire]] 17:35, 7 May 2006 (EDT)

I'm a digital fundamentalist myself, but it'll be some time until digital catches up to large-format film.  An 5x7" LF image translates to a sharp 12000x17000 pixel (204 megapixel) image [http://www.largeformatphotography.info/qtluong/example.html], which is ''way'' beyond any digital camera out there today.

Funny translation

My words: "In the U.S. even taking photographs of sculptures in the vicinity of a federal building will afford you a hassle from a Barney Fife secuirty guard, trying over protect the homeland."

TVerBeek's translation: "this can get you unwelcome attention – or worse – from anxious security personnel."

Digital vs film

I'm a digital fundamentalist myself, but it'll be some time until digital catches up to large-format film. An 5x7" LF image translates to a sharp 12000x17000 pixel (204 megapixel) image [1], which is way beyond any digital camera out there today. Jpatokal 23:18, 22 August 2006 (EDT)
