Help with technical requirements
Hi--My first post in this forum and I sure hope to get some help.
I will be taking digital photos of buildings and landscape for a nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. All photos are to be black and white and be expected to last at least 75 years. I'm not sure about these technical requirements:
be first generation
be .tiff, original capture .tiff or RAW converted to .tiff
pixel array at least 3000x2000
resolution of 300 ppi
be RGB color mode (printed in b+w)
I need to buy a digital camera with a good range from wide angle to max zoom. Right now, based on features and price I am comparing Nikon L120 and Kodak Z981. But I have no way of determining if either meets the requirements. All camera in my range are .jpeg but Kodak is also RAW.
Printing and paper is another nasty issue and more $$. I have a nice 35mm set-up but good b+w prints are a worse headache it seems.
One last--reviews all mention noise with 14mp cameras. Is this really visible to the untrained eye and a problem?
Bureaucrats have me in a corner. I really need help to determine what it all means and what I need to look for in a point and shoot.
Please excuse my long post but photo season for my subject is here, budget needs to be created, work needs to be done, and just call me---confused.
Thanks much - Mike
