I post too Much on Here!!
- Jan 29, 2011
I am a 1 series owner and user, I prefer 20-30mp and have no client use for more. As it is I have my work on interstate billboards and plastered all over the walls of design centers and creative spaces at huge reproduction ratios you stand next to. 20mp works fine for all of it, 30mp will give me a bit extra but I don't need it for client work of any kind. I, personally, do not want the hassle and inevitable slowdowns and storage limitations associated with larger files for all my work, it is of zero benefit to me or my clients.Btw, the era of DSLR 1 series cameras required the sacrifice of resolution to focus on speed and performance because of the state of technology at the time of their creation. That was the state of the art at that time. The best of what was possible. This is OBVIOUSLY not the case anymore. Please do not compare the two eras. Ridiculous.
I would like a high mp camera for some personal archival work I want to do but it isn't a priority and the 30mp will probably be more than sufficient anyway. If it isn't I'll pick up a secondhand 5DS for nothing and sell it when I'm done for a few dollars less.
What is ridiculous is people presuming what is good for them is good for everybody.
