A while back I noted Canon's new cameras:
Canon EOS 40D 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III 21.1MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
Nikon has since announced new cameras also, including:
Nikon D300 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
And Sony has followed as well:
Sony Alpha A700 12.24MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
All are amazingly capable, and all are moving toward incredible resolution, great high ISO performance, and other capabilities that surpass what was once possible with film. At the same time other aspects of photography -- from image storage to printing to software -- advance.
Is a sort of photography renaissance moving forward -- or have our ideas been surpassed by our tools?
