Prediction: Ten years from now, photographers will either have to invest in hundreds of memory cards, or each card will have a 1TB capacity.
Canon continued to make waves in the megapixel war with the unveiling of a currently in-development 120-megapixel sensor for a DSLR. Users testing out the sensor at Canon Expo 2015 reported that RAW images racked up 210 megabytes of space for each file!
Think about that: With a relatively standard 8GB memory card, you’d be limited to just 37 images. It would take a terabyte of space to store a more reasonable 5,700 images.
This all begs the question—do we really need 120-megapixel images for everyday photography?
