NotANumber: The high iso performance of XT30 is going backwards, noticeably worse than XT20.

Tomasz_Wk: "I think that full-frame can probably reach 70-80MP". It tells a lot about the future limit of full frame cameras as compared to medium format that can take more resolution.

MFT has been stuck at 20mp for a while which implies a 25mp limit on APSC, an 80mp on FF and a 100mp on SMF

That's not a good reason to not think that, please think that.

A 100mp GFX sensor will have a slightly higher pixel density than a 24mp APSC sensor so I don't see why whatever well capacity it will be equipped with cannot be possible on an apsc-sized chip.

If a GFX sensor can be made at a level where 16 bit matter over 14 then so can smaller ones - just a question of economics, but the fact that it would lower the framerate should not be an impediment, people would happily shoot at 1fps for a higher IQ.

True, sensor makers need to think that too.

The future is a 180MP selfie with a boot stamping on a human face forever.

From the rules:

Contest is open only to individuals who have reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence at the time of entry and who reside in the United States, its territories (excluding Puerto Rico) and the District of Columbia, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, Canada (excluding Quebec), Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

Nm that the world has a bit more countries than that - what did the people of Puerto Rico and Quebec do ?

SirPeepsalot: Are these claimed to be real-time achievable at reasonable fps on a commodity (even if high-end) hardware ? Because touting game engines with pre-rendered scenes that would otherwise run at 640x480@0.5fps is very 1998.

Noone is dismissing the technology, but a game engine implies realtime capabilities and it's sad to see that after 20 years the cinematics-vs-gameplay is still considered a viable marketing technique.

Source for "a truly impressive amount of genuine ray-tracing in hardware and in real-time at 60fps" ?

N-VB: I live in Paris, and instagrammers became abolutely ridiculous. Every touristic place, there are peoples waiting in lines to take the same picture and the same pose as everyone else. Like holding the tip of the Pyramide du Louvre, or sitting by the stairs in front on the Eiffel Tower.
Same spot, same pose, same picture as 100 000 of others.
Some of them pay big money for a picture. But I also encoutered some girls "I'm famous on instagram, you should pay me to take the pictures"
Instagram = internet cancer

Because there are places without Eiffel towers, Louvres or cancerous instagrammers where he won't have this problem and someone else will get to live in Paris who doesn't mind carrying that burden.

SirPeepsalot: If Richard Prince's "rephotographs" constitute fair use - no reason for this one not to.

Maybe, I actually support the broadest possible interpretation of fair use as its benefits far outweigh the damage to creatives as the alternative is almost never licensing for fee. The concept of authorship/moral rights needs to be separated from copyrights however.

The boundary between the two is rather fictional - commercial advertisement agencies have art departments and art directors and Richard Prince's art is being traded commercially and used as a store of value.

IdM photography: The 187 MPix multi shot mode looks indeed impressive... The new and expensive 50mm lens is probably also helping to achieve this stunning resolution...

They need to be compared against the single-shot frames upresed with a state of the art algorithm to same resolution for the comparison to make sense, hope DPR will do so for the studio comparison scene.
