As you well know, it ain’t what you got, it’s how you use it that counts. That may not, of course, be much consolation or satisfy the demands of all those we have to please, but I suspect that all right-minded folk understand that, deep down, the truth of the statement is evident. It is not so long ago, after all, that we were amazed to have the almost 3 million pixels of the Nikon D1 – well, 12 years to be precise. And now you can’t buy a camera phone with fewer pixels. How many do we need, and when do we have enough for the task in hand? To my mind, more pixels on larger sensors will always be better, but what we can see this week is that when it comes down to it, the best camera is the one that you have with you. Perhaps the latest iPhone is better than the D1 that was used for Fashion Week, Wimbledon and the FA cup back in the day. And given the choice between an iPhone and no camera at all, what would you choose? That’s an easy question, but one most of us won’t have to answer in earnest in the same way that Michael Christopher Brown did (see AP dated 21 April 2012, pages 33-36). Haven’t we been spoiled?
