We have a portfolio of slides at a stock house. I contacted them today and asked for their requirements for submitting digital rather than slides.
Their reply:
35MM RGB file size 50-55MB
File resolution 300 dpi
Pixex dimension 3400 X 5100
Print size @ 300 dpi 11 x 17

Their instructions went on to explain scanning details. You will be able to tell by this question that I am not a digital whiz. Does Pixel dimension of 3400 x 5100 mean that you would have to have a digital camera capable of 3400 x 5100 for a total of 17 plus megapixels to submit to these folks.

If I am incorrect, could someone please advise how to ask if the capabilities of a D1X shooting raw would be able to deliver the quality they need.
