Huh?

21.1 Megapixel 5D Mark II by Canon

I noticed a link under the Anandtech tab on bgwillers about a 21.1 mp camera from Canon. The first thought was…

What the hell do you need a 21.1 mp camera for?

Then I read on and it said something about being able to record in HD. The second thought was…

I thought this was a camera, not a camcorder! Why do you need to record in HD on the same camera you’re getting 21.1 mp with? Wouldn’t that just eat up your memory?

Oh well, I guess I’m just weird like that. It would be cool to have, but wouldn’t know what to use it on in Kansas. Plus, I never got to the price, which I probably wouldn’t want to know in the first place. I know that 7.1 mp cameras are going for $100 or so at walmart. So, that gives you a little idea of what it MIGHT be.
