Yes, that's my point, but you're not getting the significance of it I guess.

I have a scanning digital camera back that is 7k x 7k (6x6 format), and it
IS true pixels, it isn't even up to film quality.  I also have a scanning
digital camera that gives 9M pixels (real true full color pixels), and it
also isn't near as good as a decent film can be.

T-Max 100 has a resolution rating of around 200 line pair/mm, that's over
10k samples per inch, and would be a file of APPROXIMATELY FOR EXAMPLE SAKE
(since you are being anal about arithmetic ;-) ~10k x ~15k or ~150M pixels.
