56 megapixel camera!

I don’t want to turn this blog into a gadget blog but I know there are a lot of photo enthusiasts browsing the site and The Leaf AFi 10 camera just sounds ridiculously cool. 56×36 mm true wide frame, 56 megapixels, and can shoot up to iso800. Oh, did I mention this baby’s got a 6x7cm touch screen so you can view a true 1:1 raw image?!

Hasselblad users take note that the H3DII-50 DSLR camera comes out in October and also boasts 50 megapixels!

Still, I bet a lot of you aren’t gonna take a second look at the releases of these two cameras. I’m talking to you photobugs still hoarding all that polaroid film – you don’t care about megapixels, it’s about the imperfections, expectations and surprises in developing a roll of film. The pricetags aren’t gonna help either. The Leaf retails for $43,675 and the Hasselblad, a cool $37,000.
