How Big Can You Print with Your Camera’s Megapixels?
Are you hoping to print very high quality prints greater than 20x30?
No but I like to crop a lot. I'm trying to talk myself into a D850 but I fear I might be disappointed.
Go for it! Why not? 45 mp!!
Camera makers have "mp jonesing" down cold when it comes to separating you from your money.
So far, 16-24mp APS-C Nikons and Fujis keep me happy. Neighbors still talk to me, too.
disappointed with a d850?! Time to sell a kidney and go directly for the D5.
I would love a D850 with the 24MP sensor however.
Why would you not want the 45 mp sensor? That is like medium format territory
When you crop an image you are discarding a portion of the image's MPs.
The d850 with the RAW size set to medium is around 25mp or so
Really all anyone needs unless they large print or crop a lot. I must admit though if prices up in the high mps continue to drop the idea of a large format digital intrigues me. But yeah, out of my league..
Not the same thing.
I have to wonder how many lenses that can actually rock that much resolution from that sensor.all those pixels are a total waist for just posting on the net and I certainly wouldn't want all that resolution just to crop it away.I still would take A D850 and not change a thing on how much i crop away which would be little as possible. IMO 24 MP is a sweet spot and more then enough for most things.
