Camera megapixel strategy speech at I3A conferenceCamera megapixel strategy - Questions
Are extra megapixels more of a marketing strategy than a real advantage to consumers? Since the majority of digital capture devices sold today are camera phones, do megapixels mean less than ever? “The industry has been racing along the megapixel highway ever since the first digital camera shipped,” said Sally Wiener Grotta, Moderator. “The important question is, however, whether the consumer is being properly served and informed by the marketing emphasis on the number of megapixels, which doesn’t always relate to real image quality.”

Camera megapixels
“While industry insiders know the weakness of relying on megapixels as measure of image quality, the number of megapixels is still an important check box item used in marketing digital cameras and camera phones. Mass-market consumer marketing agendas, however, are shifting the focus away from the boring technical specifications of megapixels to new advanced imaging features, such as face detection and face tracking, which are easier to communicate to end users. This will be a fun panel to explore these issues,” said Eric Zarakov, VP Marketing, FotoNation.
