Actually, the title was basically a play on what some people say, that high megapixels are a waste. What he says is quite the opposite, and that he suspects that technology will keep pushing the megapixel count and that this is fine. No one ever regrets having more resolution, and that if you want things to be remembered the best way possible, capturing it in as a high resolution is possible is not such a bad idea. The title may be click bait, but the content was quite interesting.

I think a lot of the critics did not view the whole video, or perhaps did not understand it. But he could have chosen a better title.

I think you can be confident that the choice of title was quite deliberate and in the service of "baiting clicks".

You can draw your own conclusions about that and what it says about the author, his "priorities" and his business model - but judging from the number of posts in this thread alone, the bait was pretty effective.   ; )
