Re: Reasons for wanting higher mega pixel count

To me, 24mp is enough in my images and my computer is too slow to handle 61mp. However I'd like to have a 80+mp camera, why? Because this system will save me size, weight and money, as I'll be able to turn that high res camera with a prime lens into a 24mp camera multi prime system. So instead of carrying 3 primes, I carry only one, that's more convenient and cheaper. All we need is the ability for the camera to save small/medium raws, and not only full res raw. Ideally we should be able to specify a resolution, like 24mp, and then the camera will automatically select small/medium/full depending on the crop factor. (I mean, if I'm in crop mode, then maybe I don't want to make the raw even smaller).
