Re: Sony's comments on 24mp vs 36mp
In reply to SHood, Sep 20, 2012

Well, they are actually trying to preempt questioning for not having, so far, used D800's sensor. Video is as good D800 x D600 x A99, likely.

Since th eA99 only does, what, 6fps, it's not clear that speed was an issue, can't tell actually.

Some interesting comments on why they went with 24mp.


"We think the balance between the pixel count and the sensitivities, plus the speed of reading from the image sensor is very important, especially for movies. So, with the technology we have in 2012, this sensor has the best balance of resolution, sensitivity and video functionality. If we had gone up to 36 million pixels we couldn't do 60p video or produce the same sensitivity levels. When the technology improves we can increase the pixels."
