Resolution - can we prepare for the future?
I have been wondering a lot about resolution questions recently.
As a wedding photographer I never really needed more than 12MP, and I always found it enough for prints as well (the biggest print was only 60 cm x 40 cm or 24"x16", so 12MP was always enough).
Technically 12MP will always be enough for a 60cm x 40 cm print (is that right?), but will it be enough for digital view?
I mean, 4K is less than 12MP, so now I can happily show my pictures on a 4K TV. But 5K is already present and who knows when will this resolution game stop? Will it ever stop? What do you think?
What do you think, in the more distant future (like in 30-40 years) how will we handle the 12MP photos which will be considered very low resolution?
If you want to be future proof, is it necessary to shoot family photos in 24 or 36MP instead of 12MP? What's your personal opinion?
