The megapixel race
Thought for the day…” Remember- you are unique. Just like everyone else”.
“Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects, so keep taking it regularly”.
Just been reading the latest issue of Amateur Photographer magazine, and learning about the latest and greatest cameras that are being released, some of which now come with over 40 megapixels of resolution. I read a very interesting letter on the dpreview.com forum (dpreview.com is an excellent website for anyone interested in photography) from a man who was selling his Fuji camera. He was very happy with the excellent quality photos that it produced and the very high resolution BUT he went on to say that all he ever did was to look at his pictures on the computer screen, so having so many pixels was wasted. The camera produced fantastic quality pictures, but for HIS needs, it was too much. I am sure that many people will sympathize with his views…do we really need upwards of 40mp resolution? How many photos are we actually going to print or enlarge to a huge size? And if we are just going to look at them on a computer screen then those extra pixels may indeed be wasted. I will stick with my 16mp Fuji camera for now…the results are totally ok for my needs. No need to upgrade to a 40mp camera…..I just do not need the extra pixels. Sorry Canon, sorry Sony, I am just not interested !!
Today’s photo is reduced in quality for the internet…..but shows Furusund in the Swedish archipeligo at sunset..
