Size Queen

...


For as long as I can remember, I've been working with just over 6 (I think it realistically comes in at 6.1) ...and honestly, to meet my needs, I think that's big enough. I have a friend who likes to show off his 8.0, but when I compare his equipment to mine, I really don't see any difference... especially with performance, 'mkay? Just for the record, I think Paul walks around with at least a 7.0, stuffed into his trousers...and I mean STUFFED. It is seriously thick (and white).

So, does size really matter?

I was looking at pictures of various models online this morning (I'm partial to the black ones), and I was blown away by all of the eye candy and by all of the choices available to my sweaty, needy, shaky little hands.

But I have to ask: is anything over 10 really necessary? I mean isn't that overkill? For example: I saw a model that came in at 14.7 ...Holy Schmokes...now that's a lot of mega pixels.

Y'all know I'm talking about digital cameras, right?
My lazy camera died last week, and now I have to replace it. So I'm throwing this out to the peanut gallery: Do I really want to see my zits that well defined? Is there a big difference in a camera with 8.0 vs 10.0 megapixels? I don't see a big difference in price so I'm leaning towards a 10.0 camera.
Any thoughts or comments are very much welcomed.

No, very little difference to our eyes between 8 and 10 megapixels. I'd buy as much camera as you can for your budget. The most important thing to me was the zoom on the camera....I wanted as much as I could get for those faraway shots without going to a larger camera....I liked a more compact size. I purchased this one:

Now, I do have to tell you that I still have a camera for sale if it's of any interest to you....check it out here....no pressure, no expectation or obligation. Any other questions, let me know. And, by the way, you can order them online for less than, say, Best Buy prices typically...but not always.

Dammit!

Anyway, bigger pixels is only good if you want to make posters from your prints, etc. There is so much advancement these days with digital cam, you really can't go wrote with a either a point-n-shoot or a DSLR. It's all about your preference.

Hi Chris! :-)

I have a 12 mega DSLR and I love, love, love it. It has video recording as well. If you go to my flickr page, you can see examples.

With 14 megapixels, you could crop and crop and crop and still have a decent photo.

Greg said...

That model does have quite a zoom lens.

You know what the funny shit is? I really thought you were talking about dick size until you mentioned the word megapixel.

LMFAO

10 megapixels or higher are unnecessary unless you plan to blow up (enlarge) some of your shots.

Besitos

pixels my ass :-)

truth be told it's all about the ability to make enlargements.... do you want HUGE things hanging on your walls?

RG said...

For the average user 6-8 megapixels is just fine. If you're really into your digital photography, then go ahead and get more megapixels.

cb said...

I'd say go for the 10... you'll never want more that way. Trust me on that!

I am 9x5 and it has never bothered me but there have been people who could not fit it in as it where lol People say its easy for me to say that but I still hold true to the saying 'its not what you have, its what you do with it'. I have met some guys of all different sizes and shapes and the guys that were average usually knew how to use it best :-)

Mark said...
