Re: Do pixels matter? What 20" x 30" prints reveal.

Pixels do matter, and I imagine that a high-detail scene would benefit from a high megapixel camera when printed at 20" x 30". For smaller prints, or scenes with less detail, megapixels matter less. Anyone who says otherwise has an agenda, usually that agenda is making themselves feel better about their camera despite the existence of higher megapixel bodies. More resolution is always welcome in photography. You can soften details, but you can't get them back when they aren't recorded in the first place.
