Anyone looking to buy a digital camera should read this article (NY Times).
My camera is a mere 2.0 Megapixels and I’ve always gotten great compliments on my photos. I like to think that I take interesting shots. Granted, I can’t print them larger than 8×10 without some interesting effects and cropping reduces the print size considerably. But I rarely print photos anyway.
That said, I do look forward to getting a new camera someday, but not for megapixels. I want lenses. Telephoto, wideangle, fish-eye, you name it. And flashes so I can do some semi-professional portraits. And a house that I can set up a room to store all this equipment in. And a maid to keep it clean. And…no…that’s about it.
The other interesting thing about this article is how comments to an original post set up a new experiment. That’s very Mythbusters of them. Speaking of which, maybe they’d like to take this one on, too?
