Killer resolution! Can be used for some serious forensic or research applications, just think of super macro outcomes...
Have no idea how you people can still try to minimize this camera comparing it with 5DIII...
Most dangerous kind of people, blind followers without ability to think clearly, shooting them self in the foot just to proof the point... same people also are going to vote soon again.
Two different cameras for two different purposes. Stop shooting yourself in the foot by blindly saying MPs are the answer. Thank goodness troll votes count for nothing.
I enjoy the troll posts because I can replace D800 with 5DmkII and D700 with 5DmkIII and find the priests of low light swapped places with the megapixel crusaders. It is fun to watch, and yup, goes for all the canon guys that are now the priests of the low light religion! Watch if canon makes a 30+MP camera and how suddenly, 22MP is too little and OMG how did we manage with that
Horribly over-sharpened photo I am amazed at how many seem to think it is the fault of the camera when it is clearly caused in post processing by excessive sharpening.
This is a classic case of COULD you do it, versus SHOULD you do it. I wouldn't blame anybody with a D800 from pulling as much detail they can since that's what the camera is designed to do, nor would I blame the canon guy that now takes pictures of his closet with the door closed at iso 52 thousand just to admire the detail of his socks. Both are doing the same thing. It is fun to watch.
2.5 pixels of Gaussian blur (in Photoshop) helps things immensely
selectively smoothing her skin would be better. shotgun blur is pointless.
Maybe this sort of ugly reality can stop the mindless megapixel war.
let me tell you that it hasn't stopped hundreds of fashin photographers from using medium format bodies with even higher resolutions....so...not happeing. It is what the industry wants for this sort of thing
For the record, a 7D has a higher pixel density and it is able to capture more detail, at the expense of field of view. So before going out of our way to bash this photo, remember you can get more detail, and thus WORSE hair issues with a 7D. And now that canon is able to do that, it is now ok right
