30 Megapixel DSLR Camera From Pentax
I just came across a Japanese article released by Pentax that a 30 megapixel camera will be released in the near future. I was wondering when I read this how many megapixels do we actually need in the end? I thought maybe a fair comparison would be the human eye and I did some looking around. According to wiki.answers.com, The human eye has a resolution of anywhere from 324 megapixels to 576 megapixels depending on the actual field of view angle that is used. Now if these numbesr are accurate, certainly we still have a long ways to go to matching the quality our eyes can reproduce.
The larger we get in the megapixel range with photographic sensing technology, the more memory and other issues arise to support the higher numbers. As an avid amateur photographer, I am continuously upgrading my camera with a higher megapixel camera. Typically once every 2 – 3 years I have upgraded to a higher megapixel camera with 12 megapixels being my currently resolution. I am certainly looking forward to cameras that have 30 megapixels and higher.
Connecting with Nature
Most individuals that do not use a digital camera are missing so much when it comes down to connecting with nature. Just walking down the street or even within a small area around your home has some wonderous images created by nature.
Capturing that unique image is more of an accident than a talent I feel in many cases. By having a camera with me whenever I go out allows me to capture images like the ones above. If you currently do not own a digital camera, I would highly recommend you invest at least $150.00 USD for a camera with at least a 3.1 megapixels, 2 gigabytes of external memory, 3 X optical zoom and a macro feature. You will soon learn to appreciate the level of beauty nature has to offer just outside your doorstep.
