so you are saying I need to go out and spend a lot of money for higher mega pixel cause I need a MF camera? Which would make it so bothersom to use for my needs.
Canon can't release something like the d800?
Wow, you're logic is messed up.
I rather spend my money on my comp for faster render time. And like I stated before I'm. Not going to jump ship, I love my canon lens. I guess I will happy with my 5d mark 2 a little longer.
If you had read my response then you would have spotted TWO options
1. A MF body that gives you the high mp you asked for
2. Create a virtual high MP body by stitching several images together.
And you call us clueless
I have nothing against briansquibb. I bet you are a great photographer and know your ways around your equipments and gears, but when you go into a thread and start posting why High Mega Pixel is unimportant, when the person only ask when is the next High MP camera coming out, makes you clueless. you should be posting your information in the d800 vs 5d mk 3 thread.
When you start giving advice to other people about what they need to do with out knowing what they do, what type of programs they use, what are their pipeline structure, and most importantly, what they do with their photos, makes you really clueless.
I do not tell you what type of camera you need to use, what type of gears you need to carry around, how you should take photos, and what you should do with your photos. So what gives you the rights to tell me why I don't need a High Mega Pixel camera or any one else? Do you work in my field? Do you use the same software as I do? Do know my work flow? Do you even know why I need a High Mega Pixel camera?
I will always need more Mega Pixel has I will always need more Polygons it's part of my work and part of my art. I'm a detail freak. I work in the pixel level in Photoshop as I do in the polygon level with my 3d. I value every pixel and polygon I am given because I've worked on video games, I know consoles have hardware limitation, but I have to get the most out of it. I also work with million and billions of polygons sometimes. I will always want more to push myself and my art farther and father. That is why I started doing photography to build my library of stock photos so i can use them anytime, for my needs. The more details I'm given the better, down to every strand of hair, every cloth fiber, every blade of grass, every thing. I use them for texture maps, alpha maps. displacement maps, and so forth. I stitch, modify, paint over, and create my own images too from my photos. Given more Pixel means I have a lot more real estate from every photo i take, which means I can take more out of the photos. I sample many tiny things sometimes, hair, buttons, scars, what ever catches my eyes.
Please if you can't understand why a person needs so many mega pixel try to understand where they are coming from and understand why they would need it.
Here's is some of my personal stuff and a photo i took of my wife on my 5d2.
