Since 3D is really confusing, what do you think about 2D? 2D is the way we see things actually, especially on photos and prints. And 2D is below 1D line but way above 5D, it will work from marketing point of view?

How do you sell a picture for so much?
Having sold other pictures for a lot of money, even if not as much.
What he's selling is his brand as much as the picture. It takes a lot of marketing to achieve that.
You can't convince someone to pay $1million for a first up photo you've made a print of, but if you've sold prints for $100s of thousands before then $1million isn't such a big ask. And so on.
If you want to sell a $1 million photo today then start selling $100 photos today and at some point in the future, do more limited runs of photos for $1000s and so on until you're doing 1 of's for $millions.
It's not just the picture he sold but also his name and a name brand that he has built up over time and convinced people that he is worth it.
this is actually a decent shot but worth that much money?
It's a decent shot, but nothing more. Considering his past, I'd not be surprised if the "phantom" wasn't fauxtoshopped in. It also wouldn't surprise me at all if the buyer of this had initials P.L., and that the high announced price was just to generate buzz to sell lots of $200-$1,000 prints.
Oh, with that resolution we can see that it is good for web purposesThere are full res images too. Look under the image, near its name there is a link: "( Click here to view larger image )". Enjoy!
Don't forget to take into account that most U.S. workers make less per hour than folks in other countries. Minimum wage in the U.S. is only $7.25 per hour.First:
Edit: Just did a quick Google search and see that "Last week, the lower house of Parliament in Germany voted to set a nationwide minimum wage of 8.50 euros an hour, about $11.60 (USD), effective in 2015. The upper house is expected to approve the measure this week."
That's a 60% increase over the minimum wage in the U.S. Not that everyone makes minimum wage of course.
A product has a value (production+logistics+r&d+ etc.) that is (edit:) almost independent to the market you sell it.
Sales strategy is something different.
Please also goole up not only the gross but also the net income after all taxes, social insurance and also the costs for rent, living, etc.
(I'm not willing to do so. It's your argumentation.)
So your comparison isn't one. I can find no argument.
+1 Brought a smile to my face, that's worthy of thanks.I don't know if this was already posted somewhere in the thread for the 46MP body, but obviously the "rumour" on Fred Miranda's blog about this body, which started the hype was either crazy or a hoax:*lol*
Thanks for sharing.
Jeez, is THIS really what we Canon customers have been requesting from Canon?
