A1 Still Shots

I've noticed that the still shots I take with my A1 behave differently than those stills I take with my Nikon D50 and other digital still camera pix.

I use some of these stills for the web and resize them from 1920 (or 2500 from the Nikon) down to 700 pixels wide after cropping.

The pix from the Nikon or any other digital camera nearly always have to be sharpened in Photo Shop after downsizing but the pix from the A1 look fine.

Anyone else noticed this?

I can't recall ever taking a still shot on my A1.

I have a Canon D20 for still photography. I never have to sharpen anything when downsizing. Are you shooting at your maxim resolution with the Nikon? What format are you saving the downsized images to?

I've been resizing pix for the web for the last decade now.

I get my digital pix from my own cameras (a Nikon and a Pentax) and a number of other sources and when downsized as JPEG's for the web they nearly always need edge sharpening.

I'm just intrigued that the A1 shots rarely need much, if any.

Actually it is the contrast of 3 chips rather than one single chip.
