- , but why is the focus on necessity? You don't need, you take advantage. You don't need a microwave or a washing machine. You have alternatives but it's better to use those better instruments. You don't need 41 megapixels, but why wouldn't you take advantage of the improvements in this field of technology?Apr 23, 2012

- & I to believe they have gone too far. My objection is based on what I posted quite early in this thread.
If you want to blow up a photo to cover the side of a building, get lots of pixels. However, I sometimes shoot handheld with a 2.2 megapixel camera: I get crisply defined lines, and I blow them up to 8x12 without pixilation. I rarely go bigger than 8*12, so it seems to me that, 2 or 3 megapixels is fine. Your mileage may vary.

- A car that is overloaded with horsepower can result in a potentially deadly driving experience. Similarly, cramming 41 megapixels on a sensor that isn't even DSLR-sized will have negative consequences. You get poorer quality, and especially much more image noise as each pixel gasps for light. Now, if only they had a bigger sensor...oh heck, why don't they make a real camera with a built-in smartphone? :-)Apr 23, 2012
- I wasn't thinking about cars with crazy aftermarket alterations. :p but even on those situations, you have the ability to drive safe. Getting back to this non issue, I think that for the regular user it will good to have access to this new technology. ;)Apr 24, 2012
- Yes, I agree that it will be awesome to have the pixel equivalent of a high-end camera in your pocket. I'm just pointing out that cramming a normally concrete-block-sized camera system into a itty bitty box will have some compromises on quality.Apr 24, 2012
