facedodge: So it has multiple exposure mode like the 5D3 but not HDR. Curious.
Still, catching up with features almost 10 years after Pentax introduced them to a digital body. Sad that the big players are taking a long time to innovate creative options.
SaulTh: That is not 16x the resolution, it is only 4x the resolution i.e. resolution in each of its two dimensions -- it is 16x the *area*, or 16x the number of *pixels*. It is best to talk in resolution terms, that is the width or height of the sensor in pixels, since that determines the true ability to resolve detail, or crop/zoom while maintaining detail -- the total number of pixels is of lesser use as its relation to resolution is affected by the aspect ratio of the sensor, and resolution is proportional to the square root of pixel count -- silly to talk in total pixel count.
16MP is not double the resolution og 8MP it is a 3rd more. To double resolution you need to quadruple pixel count or double line width per pixel count in each direction.
The same way this new sensor is only 4x the resolution of 1080p which is 2MP.
Doubling resolution goes something like this:2MP, 8MP, 32MP, 128MP, 512MP, etc.
