Is shooting 24mp necessary?
Dec 26, 2012

I'm new to the SLR world and am getting the hang of my a65.  I used to keep my point and shoots at 3-6mp because honestly the pictures were just easier to share/store.  I was talking to a clerk at the sony store who said I was wasting the talents of the a65 by keeping it anything below the full 24mps.

So I guess my question is, is it really worth it to shoot at 24mp?  I'm not planning on blowing these images up and have done some cropping but nothing major.

I'm making my way through the Friedman book so if the answer lies therein (I haven't gotten to the RAW vs. JPEG chapter yet) perhaps I should wait.  But in the meantime I'd be open for advice.
