With all the chatter today about needing more MP or DR, let's not forget where we were just 10-years ago. For those of you under 30-years-old, 10-years ago seems like a lifetime. For those of us over 60-years-old, 10-years ago seems like yesterday!
Here's a look back to 2004:
Canon EOS-10D, 6.3 MP 1.6x crop sensor, 3 FPS, $1,499
Nikon D100, 6.1 MP 1.5x crop sensor, 3 FPS, $1,499
Canon EOS-1D II, 8.2 MP 1.3x crop sensor, 8.5 FPS, $4,495
Nikon D2H, 4.1 MP 1.5x crop sensor, 8 FPS, $3,199
Nikon D1X, 5.3 MP 1.5x crop sensor, 3 FPS, $3,899
Canon EOS-1DS, 11.1 MP full frame sensor, 3 FPS, $7,999
Kodak DCS-14N, 13.8 MP full frame sensor, 8 FPS, $9,000+
So, what's my point! Just this, what we thought was fantastic back then, is "not so much" today. However, there are millions of great images from back then! And in 10-years from now, we'll probably still be arguing about needing more MP and DR, yet we'll still have tons of great images from right now! Life is short my friends, get out and enjoy what you have right now! The future will be here starting tomorrow, and with it, undoubtably more of everything you could ever wish for or imagine!
