Optical resolution

Many scanners and some digital cameras have two resolution figures quoted in their spec sheets - optical and interpolated. Optical is the figure you should trust as it's a true pixel capture, unlike interpolated that uses the optical figures to calculate and add new pixels to increase resolution.
