I reviewed the Web Article from the four Photographers regarding their experiments with different Digital Cameras / Lenses and 4x5 Inch Film Sheet. Their undertaking had a major fatal flaw. They didn't produce Optical Prints from the Film. Instead, they just scanned the Film Sheet into their Computer which means that the original Resolution (86 Trillion) and Colour of the Film is lost. Film has a Resolution of 6.9 Billion Molecules of Dye per Square Millimetre, but this is only retained if the Picture Print is made using real Light -- not a Computer Scan. The Attached File explains the inferiorities of Digital Photography.
I note the self-published "theory" and the heavy use of capitialisation in the poster's writing. Add in the determined iconoclasm, the superior position of knowledge, the apparent learnedness and the resoluteness....

The best example I have of this kind of thing is a massive publication by Michael Pinder called "Time on our Hands - Global Philosophy for the New Age". This is a splendid self published tome, many copies of which have been sent unsolicited to UK Civil Servants, which espouses the case for the adoption of a decimalised time system.
Not necesarily a crazy idea - afterall in Europe at least we are embracing the decimalisation of most measuring systems - but what really sets it apart is how it claims decimal time will prove to be the cure for just about all economic, political, medical and scientific problems.
The publication is highly literate, thoroughly researched and quite entertaining. Quite barking, of course.
There seem to be quite a lot of these sorts of people about - well meaning, determined, obessive. The more intelligent and/or better educated they are the more trouble they cause because it takes a bit more effort to counter their arguments.
The recent introduction of FOI legislation in the UK has given these people a field day as they can demand their legal rights to endless replies to requests for information.
My office recently spent over £50,000 of tax payers' money responding to one crank's demands for information and a public enquiry into a supposed political cover up...
