Besides hefty colours, does this thing take pictures 🙂


Looks like the pixel madness isn’t about to end.

Canon designing a 40mp and Nikon working on a 52mp, I’m going to need a laptop for each image before long….


I am disappointed — only 20MP. I was hoping that it would be 40mp so it would greater resolution than the Nikon FF.


Oooh! 20MP!!

And “advanced imaging functions”!

Disappointed it doesn’t have 35x optical zoom, though.


Why settle for 35 X ? (does exist, remember ?) No, let’s demand 60 X ! (its only a marginal possibility that we’re gonna need 60X one of these days, but then, huh 😀

In before the ‘real camera’s aren’t pink’ crowd.


For some reason I want to hit it with a sledge hammer.


20.1 MP!!!! I pre-ordered mine. 😉


exactly, people need to realize the camera would be just as good if it were 6 MP. The Pentax Q is already 12 MP, but to resolve that the lens would have resolve well over 300 lp/mm, which is insane. A lens that can resolve that much would cost $1000+. The most those point and shoots need to be is maybe 6 MP.

but they may be in cahoots with the companies who make SDHC cards. 20mp files take up more room than 6mp files….and of course there is the marketing factor.

Snappy Happy

I still use my 6mp Fuji F20, as it usually produces better pictures than the 12mp Canon SX130 that came after it. I can only imagine what a 20mp wonder is like. I’d be tickled pink if these small sensor cameras were no more than 10mp by now.


I still occasionnally use my Fuji F10, such an undestructible and useful pocket camera, with a lens perfectly fitting the sensor, that give great 6MP pictures: everything is a matter of balance!

After 16MP and now 20MP, I guess the race won’t be over and couldn’t wait to discover the future 24MP and 32MP compact camera generations, using such revolutionary resolutions to produce instagram-alike 1200×800 pictures for the web! lol!
