Do you think they are just going to settle in at 30mp, and not introduce more mp in the next generation of cameras? I don’t shoot paid sports, but a lot of wildlife, and i’d certainly be fine with more mp
Sure they are, I never said they wouldn't. But for a pro sports shooter at least, more isn't better. More is slower, more clumsy, and many times a hindrance. There is a time and place and need for high resolution. When it comes to speed to market during a game thru media outlets and social media, nobody needs high resolution images. They need agility and speed. One day perhaps when everything is faster (card access, burst speeds, wireless transfer, software for processing, etc), then resolution can be higher. We are not there yet. I have been requested to get images quickly per quarter to the media desk. I have to get them transferred quickly from the 5D4 to Google Drive, where the media person is pulling them up, cropping and overlaying scores and stats. High res would be a mess for this process. Others have card runners, I don't need that though.
For Canon's release, they will likely make FF mirrorless that relate to the 5D4/6D, 5DS, and then the 1DX.
A9 ~ 1DX
A73R ~ 5DS
A73 ~ mix of the 6D2 and 5D4
It feels like this first FF Canon mirrorless is targeting the A73. It certainly doesn't come close to the A73R or A9.
