Hi,Indeed, the way you complain is by not buying Canon products and that's why next April, I won't be spending money on Canon but on Sony. Hit them where it hurts: in the pocket. They won't listen to anything else.
While you're complaining, I'm sticking with Canon. Which other system offers these options? —
8-15 fisheye zoom
24 with IS
28 with IS
35 with IS
24-70/4 with IS and macro
200-400 with built-in 1.4X
flash with built-in radio
world's lightest DSLR
The option list can go from NYC to SFC for all I care.
If I need to do prints at ~3' in size at 300dpi with out of camera images then there is nothing that Canon currently offers that will do that for me, irrespective of the lens. If I need clean shadows then there is nothing that from Canon that I can currently buy to give me that. And so on.
All the options in the world are meaningless to me if the system doesn't offer me the options that *I* need and what I need is better IQ, not a dozen super expensive and heavy lenses that I'll never own or use.
Hey buddy, nice try, but try again.
Ha. 3' at 300dpi? Show me one 35mm camera, full frame or APS, that can do 77 megapixels. Guess what, Nikon doesn't even come close to your desires either. I'll do the math for you since I'm assuming you have no clue how to arrive at that number. 3 ft = 36 in, 36in * 300dpi = 10800 pixels. With a 3:2 aspect ratio, that's 10800 x 7200 = ~77000000.
Funny that you *need* specs like that, when they've never existed, and won't exist for several years more. How have you gotten by this whole time when no one has come close to meeting your precious *need*??
FYI, the sensor exist and it's a Canon 120MP APS-H (Canon already develop a 50MP sensor in 2007) sensor... it's can readout at 9.5 frames per second, but too bad, I don't think it'll be for consumer use.
IMHO, Canon had the technology and it's just whether is it feasible to incorporate into a camera now. Remember as resolution goes up, image size also goes up and in order to save such a large image file to a card at reasonable time, the write speed of the card cannot be too slow... I don't think Canon will come out a camera that will take a long time to save a few images to the average speed card... high speed, high capacity card is still very expensive.
Have a nice day.
