Yes -  also interesting that on a lot of historic photographs on big 
negatives, the background trivia record a lot of social history material 
at decent resolution.

I guess we all got used to 35mm because the cameras were compact and the 
images were good enough.

I'm looking forward to a point though where the cameras are still the 
same sort of size, but the resolution is much better than 35mm ever was. 
  Fingers crossed, though subjectively I think we may be getting there. 
I get the impression that my current 10 megapixel camera has better 
resolution than 35mm film, certainly at 400 ASA. In some modes (which 
are admittedly lower resolution), it has much better light sensitivity 
than 400 ASA too. It's all getting quite impressive, though the user 
interfaces could do with being less extrovert and more informative I guess.
