Crac1: Hello, I confess that I no longer understand the recent political Nikon ... Why 24 million pixels in an entry level DSLR? And what will they do to the replacement for the Nikon D300s if the little camera has 24 million pixels ??Looks like they have "flipped" and abandoned quality imagen general, and especially high sensitivity for the benefit of the size of the image ... What does an amateur with 24 megapixels honestly?Nikon suddenly recedes. I am worried and disappointed.But despite this, I remain faithful to the yellow mark ... for some time.Best regards.
It's mostly the other way around: sensor manufacturers offer their wares and Nikon picks whatever suits them best.
Sony makes the sensors and offers them to third parties, which add their own tweaks and image processors (Xpeed for Nikon vs. Exmor for Sony). D3 and D700 are supposedly from Aptina.
