I've borrowed a friends' DSLR on pretense of buying it. To test its quality, I took some pics and compared them to my point & shoot and to my camera phone. I find the results surprising. Attached is a newspaper, shot from ~2ft away with a 500watt halogen light. That capital Y is about 1.5mm high. The pics are white balanced and enlarged by 200% (so each 1x1 camera pixel is 2x2 in the attached images) The 3 pics are (randomly): LG Smartphone 8MP (new) Canon 630 6MP (5 years old) Canon Rebel 10MP (5 years old) 1] Which pic do you think is best? 2] Can you match the pic to the camera?
