Heard anything about this Ian ?

Now, word comes from SonyAlphaRumors that the next high-end Sony camera may feature a 50MP sensor and reside above the Alpha A99 in Sony’s DSLR lineup. According to tips, Sony is working on two potential options with one to be released as early as Spring 2013.

What do you think about a DSLR with a 50MP full frame sensor? Is that too much? Or is that the kind of resolution you are after?

Re: Sony users

It's certainly possible; the pixel pitch will be no worse than Micro Four Thirds and most APS-C sensors. The files will be ridiculously massive though; 150MB for an uncompressed 8 bit TIFF, for example.

Re: Sony users

I would venture to say totally unsuitable for the average domestic printer and indeed computer.
