Resolution is an often complex topic but even more so when it comes to how it relates to human vision. And it’s kind of a two-part question, to begin with. What resolution do cameras need to be to capture what the human eye sees? What resolution do screens need to be for the human eye to not be able to see the individual pixels?
But it’s even more complex than that, as this video from Vsauce explains. This isn’t a new video, but it seems to have popped back up to the fore again recently. I thought it was pretty fascinating, especially as the resolution debate never seems to end and we haven’t featured it here on DIYP before. So, here it is.
