By now, we all know that megapixels alone don’t make a good camera. But that doesn’t make the new Phase One XF 100MP any less impressive, with an image sensor that captures 100 of the things while also promising to provide more analog-like images.
Remember that breathtaking 10k-timelapse video we stumbled upon last month? Expect to see more stuff like that in the future, but shot from drones: PhaseOne has announced the world’s smallest 80-megapixel medium format camera—a high end, lightweight shooter designed specifically for aerial photography.
Last week Hasselblad was holding down the largest-sensor-available title with its 50MP H3DII-50, but now Phase One's P65+ digital back matches the size of a standard piece of 645 film at 40.4 X 54.9mm-a first for digital sensors-for a final resolution of 65 megapixels. But if you're guessing it'll cost you, you…
Don't get me wrong, I've used my fair share of digital cameras in the past, but honestly, who the hell would ever need a 39-megapixel camera—except, of course, for VERY VERY detailed porn.
