Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Still waiting for high MP canon while Nikon is coming out with new 800« on: May 24, 2014, 09:47:46 PM »
I asked, why can not Canon introduce a high mega pixel camera as Nikon and Sony. Not if any brand are out selling another. So why?
And about signal noise and if the cameras file size are compared at the same file size, there are not much to discusse, they are equal regarding higher iso. So my question is, why can not Canon introduce a high megapixel camera year 2014 ?
Similar questions were asked in Nikon forums prior to them using Sony's 36MP sensor and Nikon folks used all of the same arguments here that Canon guys do about why they didn't need it.
I'm a firm believer in the fact that Canon have been working down a different path for sensor R&D in the belief that their current design pattern for full frame sensors was good enough and that Sony's advances with the 36MP sensor caught Canon by surprise.
But, Nikon users had a mere 12MP in their FF cameras, the D3/D3S and the 5D MkII competition D700, until the $7,000 D3X (the 1Ds MkIII competitor).
There is a huge difference in usable resolution between 12MP and 21MP files, there is not such a huge leap between 24MP (the current 5D MkIII) and the 36MP Sony sensor.
