I still remember wondering if I would ever fill the 512kb hard drive on my first computer (with a hard drive).
Speccing the 512kb drive instead of the standard 128kb* one nearly doubled the price and I almost didn't think it was worth it.

Luckily work was paying for it.

*Hard Drive capacities may actually have been different, but it was a long time (and many many computers) ago and it was something like that.

Personally, I don’t think you can have TOO high a resolution...... if shooting in low light conditions, and/or processing RAW files, the higher the res the better. You always have the option to reduce the image size afterwards. The one thing you can’t do is raise the resolution of a low res image to start with....

Whether you NEED such a high resolution to start with is down to the individual user and what you want to do with your images.

You’d need to be cross-eyed to do that! 😂🤣

The “Man in the street” clearly has no need whatsoever for such an incredibly high level of resolution, but I am sure there are a fair few applications where it would be useful though.

I bet it ain’t cheap though.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

That was exactly my thought, I have just bought a Nikon full frame camera and the fact that I can, as you say, get so much more detail from a small cropped area that I would dearly love one of these "over the top megapixel" ones.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!
