Let's face it, these days most of us don't print the majority of our photographs. Typically they will live on forever on the Internet whether it be via social media, cloud storage solution, or your own website. In today's world, people rather compare sensor technology by pixel-peeping and zooming in to a photograph at 300 percent, criticizing the camera for not rendering a leaf out perfectly half a mile away on screen. What if we took a step back, away from our crazy magnification, and actually hit Cmd+p and looked at how photographs were meant to be viewed: printed.
In Nigel Danson's latest video he compares A2-sized (16.5 x 23.4 inch) prints made with his Nikon D810 and Fujifilm X-T2. The results are surprising. Danson addresses right off the bat some of the critics whom will say this isn't a scientific test. He completely agrees, this is a real-world side by side comparison, which in my opinion is way more beneficial for the majority of photographers. I’d also like to add, for the photographers who regularly print extremely large images, there is definitely an argument to be made as well for keeping a full-frame, large-megapixel camera body in your inventory.
In the end, Danson even admits to the possibility of migrating from Nikon to Fuji, based on the resolving power of the images when printed. Admittedly, if I hadn't’t done the exact same thing, I wouldn't’t believe it, but after migrating to Fuji from Nikon I haven’t looked back.
