Need a Reference point old vr new technology
Oct 14, 2010

While I like and think it is logical that DP review compares similar current models, I cannot help but feel that another reference is needed.

I am amazed at the pixel density of current cameras, especially the point and shoots - all of them at 14M pixels and no sign that they are going to stop at 14!

So has the technology improved so much that 14M pixels sensors are better than the old 5M pixel sensors - or is everyone just learning to live with what they get.

I would like to see a like-for-like comparision. Pick a camera family say the Canon ELPH series and compare the quality of the 4M, 6M, 8M, 12M and 14M pixels cameras.

has the quality gotten better, is there more software processing or is everyone just living with what they get.
