Techno-addiction
Jan 11, 2013

With the advent of 24 megapixel in DX format sensor, the world of photography is split into two major groups: one of the opinion that 24 megapixel isn't of practical use to everyday shooter, and another to whom the more means the merrier. Does it imply that we nowadays invest on features that we won't ever use, that we're carried away by the features list and megapixel race? Another example of this is number of focus points available. D40 had a meager 3 focus points, D90 has 11, D7000 has 39. Is it really necessary for daily amateur shooters to have 39 focus points? Of course, it provides with a more flexible AF-system, but doesn't 11 point suffice for that? Today, cameras are more of an electronic gadget than an instrument to capture and immortalise moments. Before buying a camera, we sift through hundreds of benchmarks and scores. We nowadays have a tendency to buy the best available. That tendency is natural, but it has become an obsession for many guys nowadays. Instead of learning the art of photography, we give far too much importance to sensor scores and features list. That, I think, is unnecessary. Art, I believe, cannot be measured by number, and as photography is an art, maybe these quantitative analysis of cameras are a bit superfluous and caters only to the technology-gluttons inside us. then again, in this age, maybe technology is the new art.
