zonoskar: The strange thing is, in 2002 Canon released the 1Ds with an 11MPix full-frame sensor. So why choose a 2MPix sensor for the rover 2 years later?

Clearly, those JPL engineers and scientists don't know what they are doing. I'll bet there are folks here who can teach them a bunch about photography. Bring on the parade of bozos and trolls.

Sam Carriere: It would be wonderful is Dpreview left this NASA boondoggle to the newspapers and concentrated on matters of interest to photographers.

Way to go Sam Carriere! Stay classy. Keep that Spam wagon rolling.
Not to worry though, school resumes in a few short weeks and you can get back to your true intellectual pursuits.

Last night I was looking at images from the NASA Curiosity Mars rover.
In some sense these are images from a 350 million mile telephoto lens.
For me it is remarkable to think I have a sense of what it looks like on the surface of Mars. Then I found myself pondering what the early pioneering photographers like Carlton Watkins, T.H. O'Sullivan, William Henry Jackson, Et Al would have thought about this.
