I always send a minimum of 33 mb @300ppi images for magazines. Usually via writeable DVD. My Amateur Photographer published images were 3000 x 1937 pixels which gave me a file of 33.3 mb.
Yes of course. Sorry for the confusion. But not raw OldBoy, I tend to send Tiff to magazines for some strange reason only known to my subconscious mind, but probably for the reason Geoff points out above - a lot of magazines prefer uncompressed images, or did at one time. Of course jpegs would be compressed, so yes smaller files. A 33mb Tiff file would be compressed to around 13.5 mb Jpeg at full quality. So my appologies.
As for film vs digital: I think it is hard to beat Fuji Velvia, but I use a FF camera and have no trouble in replicating the quality of medium format with it. But for the best of all quality a large format camera and sheet film is still very hard to beat, even from the top end digital camera that need a win on the lottery to purchase.
