Olympus Head Akira Watanabe Says That Twelve Megapixels Is Enough For Consumer Digital Cameras

How Many Megapixels Does Your Camera Have?

Are you a megapixel hoarder, just waiting for them to up the total in your next new digital camera? Well, exec Akira Watanabe of Olympus says that 12 megapixels is plenty — "enough for covering most applications most customers need."

I have to agree with him, especially that considering once you get to a certain point, the average person doesn't need that many megapixels, considering what most people end up doing with their photos.

I get wonderful quality out of the 6 of my little point-and-shoot, and beautiful, rich photos with the 10 of my DSLR.

I doubt this declaration will put any cap on the rising number though (megapixels being the high-thread count in the digital photography world), but now I'm curious — how many megapixels does your digital camera have? Do you want more?
