No high megapixel Canon because CR2 is based on PCD?
4 months ago

It seems to me that the CR2 file and Kodak Photo CD file design is very similar.

The Kodak Photo CD supported a maximum resolution of ~25 megapixels.

If the basic design concept of the CR2 file is based on the Kodak Photo CD, could Canon be limited to 25 megapixels?
