    Default Coming soon - 120MP

    http://www.cameraegg.org/canon-shows...-cp-show-2015/

    When Nikon launched the D800, there were lots of laughs about how ridiculous that was and how no one needs the megapixels... and now this... must upgrade everything to cope with the 120MP... sounds like a good plan for equipment manufacturers...

    Once upon a time, when 4/6 MB dslr came out, people were showing off their excellent 1-2 Mb photo....
    fast forward, when D800 resolution announcement was made, questions everywhere..

    History will repeat!

    I do need that. I guess its for people like me who is never enough.

    But megapixel without the bit depth is useless. Megapixel but comes in a big chunky machine is also... not friendly. haha

    When we set the upper limit of PC-DOS at 640K, we thought nobody would ever need that much memory.
