New Sony sensor announced...
12MP, 10fps, CMOS
So, the Sony Alpha-10 and Nikon D300 models might knock the Canon 40D out of the water, no?
Same as most of the Nikon line...Its still a aps-c sensor same as the original alpha.
adding more megapixels to the same size sensor is like blowing up a picture in photoshop, you cant add resolution, its a law of the universe.
more megapixels doesnt mean anything, its sensor size, and the refinements
of the sensor, ie low noise or speed etc...
Im sure the camera is great and its fast and all that, but the image quality
shooting at iso 100 will be no different than the original alpha.
Same as most of the Nikon line...
Same as most of the Canon line... excluding full frames and 1 series.
Why single out the alpha?
But yeh.. at some point some high megapixel count A and some even higher megapixel count B won't matter much even on a 35mm full frame... but for now it does matter.
But it is important to note... this isn't an issue with just the Sony.. but all DSLRs.
(This is the number one reason why a digital Pentax 645 in a reasonable price would be a big hit.... if Pentax would just run with it)
Not true either. Megapixels and sensor size are indeed related.... As I said.. pixel density is the issue.
There are other factors that you are not accounting for... internal image processing... thickness of IR filter... and a boat load of design decisions.
