Re: Amazing amount of fine detail captured by the Sony Alpha 900

If someone produces a 35 mm full frame camera with 100 Megapixels, beware. Given the limitations of the wavelength of light, no lens can live up to that resolution. I suggest that the Megapixel race is over. Marketing people may produce one of these cameras, but no physics expert will buy one. -Son...

Re: Amazing amount of fine detail captured by the Sony Alpha 900

The key for making $$$ on Sony SLR's is selling lenses and accessories, not 24MP FF bodies. This is why they are trying to get a Sony low end DSLR in every woman and child's hands. If Sony wanted to make more $$$ on bodies then they would offer D3, D700, and 5DMKII equivalents and that would draw m...

Re: Amazing amount of fine detail captured by the Sony Alpha 900

It's missing a ton of features, a quality JPG engine, and it's frame rate can not keep up with many other cameras, it's high ISO can be improved, etc, etc. Again, these are all technical issues that can, and will be solved going forward. No it won't...we are approaching the point of diminishing ret...

Re: Amazing amount of fine detail captured by the Sony Alpha 900

You guys miss the point I am trying to make. The point is not that the 900 might have some issues that won't work for some people. The point is that with the introduction of the A900 and other full frame high MP cameras, and given enough time, 24 MP will become the new 11 MP. 4 years ago, people tho...

Re: Amazing amount of fine detail captured by the Sony Alpha 900

I think the point here, at least for me, is that past a certain point, all cameras today take outstanding photographs at a fraction of the cost of what it used to (if you consider film and processing). The only real question left unanswered is "How good is good?" If you look at the cost of...

Re: New Review of the Sony A900 is Very Positive

Having shot with the 900 for about a month now, I am in love. My only compliant(s) so far is sometimes the dynamic range of the sensor is a little too good. What I mean is that sometimes I get foreground lighted stuff that I don't want to be lighted. That is more operator error than a fault of the m...
