I thought about posting this in the rumor section, but it seems to be a little more legit than rumor...2009 maybe? Jumping to 50MP seems like a lot of wasted recoup of R&D expenses. They could build an entire new product roadmap for the next 3 years or more.

The problem is: the current lens collection will not be able to give 50MP in the 1.3x crop sensor area.

That would only be 33 mp on an EF-S size sensor. How could we live with such low resolution? ;) :)

Intel and the flash manufacturers better wake up. Quad core and serious storage are the only limits.


people will always try to stop you doing the right thing if it is unconventional
Full frame and some primes.

Well I'd say an interface cable is pretty important too....if you're chugging at USB 2 transfer speeds at something that now needs 10xs as much transfer speed.....well it's a lot all the way around:lol:

I wonder what the noise is like ;)

Mind you, for even up to A3 prints surely this many megapixels is overkill unless you're a hardcore cropper :p I don't think I'd want that only because it'd chew up the memory like nothing else and I don't print over A3+ :p

But hey, nice bragging rights for Canonites ;)

50 Mpix in 19x28 mm ??? It sounds like a joke, now tell me that is able of 64.000 ISO or higher too

You can get a high quality 24 x 16 from an 8MP camera so who really needs 50PM anyway... You'd probably be talking $25,000 plus for a DSLR with one of those in anyway... Overkill for what I need, but I can imagine people drooling already...

50 megapixels sounds good, but when you think about it, on each axis it's slightly less than double the pixel density of my 5D.

ie 12.9 x 2 x 2 = 51.6

So it's good, but perhaps not as good as you may first think

I can't imagine how much it would cost to upgrade my computer system to handle this.

i know we don't need a 50 megapixel camera right now, but if the people in R&D at Canon have the same attitude about progress as many of you have, we would all still be shooting with 1 megapixel cameras and saying "no thanks" to 8 megapixels...
