Re: Where Is the Camera Industry Headed In this Ridiculous Resolution War?

In some ways, it's similar to the HP-race in consumer cars. Total nonsense for practical purposes yet it happens every 2 decades or so.... and on car-forums, benchracers will discuss ad nauseum what car is "better" although none of those participating in the discussion use all that HP (or even ever drove a single car being discussed) So car-forums are not that different to DPR

Myself, I'm totally fine with my 10-to-18MP systems. I'm considering an additional camera for some specific colour-work, but I'm actually put off by all these idiotic resolutions.

*EDIT* I realize that I even use a 5MP and 6MP camera on a regular basis, and the reactions on the pics is never "those suck because its not enough MP"
