If 99% of our work goes directly online, why do we still need 35+ Megapixel Cameras?

The final step will be artificial intelligence, which will choose the particular frame, and then do the cropping, from all the megapixels in all those high-frame-rate bursts!

And at that point, the photographer will be completely dispensable!

Welcome to the modern world!

Sony had such AI auto cropping in their cameras since at least 2012. It was originally called Auto Portrait Framing and later Auto Object Framing. It used to be enabled by default. It sounds like the A6400 and 6100 still have it. The A7RII seems to be the last full-frame camera with it.
