It's not long since conventional photographer wisdom stated that no-one
needed more than 12 megapixels. However, after Nikon reignited the
megapixel race with the D800, and with 250-megapixel cameras
on the horizon, pixels (along with sensor size) are once again where
it's at. We recently spent some time with the current full frame DSLR
megapixel champion, the Canon EOS 5Ds, to see what it's all about.
Following a decidedly ho-hum reception to its EOS M mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in 2012, Canon decided not to even release its follow-up, the M2, in the US. And when its successor, the M3, rolled out across Asia and Europe earlier this year, it looked like Canon was ready to give up on the US mirrorless market for now. However, the firm has announced the 24-megapixel shooter will finally get a US release later this year.
