    No, how are you going to get by with a measly 50 megapixels? You need one of these:

    People get way too excited about plays in the numbers game. Oh boy, this camera has a bigger number on it, it must be better! It’s crap. I’d rather take a clean 8MP sensor with a wide dynamic range than a noisy 50 MP sensor that blows highlights. If you can make a clean 50MP sensor with good dynamic range all the better, but I really wish people would stop jumping all over it when the latest superficial advancement in the numbers game comes out and instead actually paid attention to the things that matter. Like, you know, how the pictures look. If the pictures look like crap I don’t care if I can zoom in on an eyelash in a head-to-toe shot, I’m going to go out and get a camera that takes good pictures.

    IIRC, the camera on the Martian Rover was/is about 1 Megapixel. Those are pretty nice images (and/or image compositions).

    Except that camera didn’t have a bayer array, it was a monochrome sensor with a bunch of filters they put in front of the lens.

    In general, so would I.

    But when you’re trying to set up 16 4′ x 8′ panels as the end result, megapixels really *do* count.

    You should tell someone with more money. I don’t think god has that much.
