I think we all 'want' more MP, after all the D3x has 'em, eh? ;-)
Using and having, using and needing, needing after the fact - oops, well, you know. It's all fun and games until we need to crop. (And don't tell me to move in, okay?)
I know I want 'everything' the is to better my pallet - I want what's under the hood to work to my advantage, but that doesn't mean that I'm the most capable person to make the decisions as to what I need to figure what those things are. And I think I'm a fairly capable person.
I think we'll all benefit as the fullness of technology develops. Unfortunately, there isn't a nice guide written to let us know what we need to do to keep up. At least I don't have one. And worse, it looks like we don't have honest gatekeepers.
And the clue bird has landed that the websites, blogs and magazines overwhelming singular interest is to continue to be websites, blogs, and magazines. They have zero interest in providing unbiased information from editorial staff. The monthly, weekly, daily love fests have become an embarrassment.
One stark example, no single website championed the D7000 Video defective pixel issue. Shame on all photographic writers - you collectively suck! Where were your capes? At the cleaners? You didn't think this defect in on of the milestone cameras was worth any ink? Jesus, give me a break.
You porked the pooch on this one. And now we're watching, and doubting, every work any of you write.
The journalism industry that follows photography right now is the pitts. I don't really trust them much. I like to see black and white and I'll willing to see some gray, but this purple has to go.
If the photo sites on the larger chip will be a problem, give me a clear example in every day terms with every day samples in a shooting variety that makes sense indoors and out with light conditions that make sense, too. I'd like to understand the cost of the chip in dollars and cents and the cost of the craming of the chip into the box(es) or form factor(s), too. I can get that a 24x36 chip might have to fall into a D3x, but does it have to? Might it fit into a D700? Or a D7000? Could a 6x7 chip fit into a Coke can size AVCHD movie camcorder? Just saying...
If we don't have these gatekeepers helping us guard, research, interpret, disseminate, and information correctly and timely, how will we know what's what effectively?
