Got megapixels?

Postby hemingray » Mon Jul 21, 2008 11:53 am

My DSLR has 8 megapixels, my little point and shoot has 12mp. We're moving right along in the megapixel wars... Look out though - Hasselblad has announced a 50 (yes, fifty) megapixel DSLR camera.

I'm guessing it probably costs as much as a good SUV.... :-)

Hasselblad already has a couple of cameras in the 30's. Like you said though they will probably cost the same as a car.

Well, OK, a cheap SUV... :-)

I grew up around Hasselblads, but haven't followed them so it was breathtaking - 50MP and such a price!

That comes with a lot of bragging rights... :-)
