While the race has been on to produce higher and higher resolution
sensors for digital cameras, while reducing the noise, the future is
post-processing images to enhance grain/noise and sharpness. It
appears that this is possible now, but at a very high cost. (It is
still more economical to buy a more capable camera than to buy the
hardware that can DO this. But I'm sure that will change in time.

When costs come down, this will be one of the final nails in the
coffin of many DSLR camera makers.
It also will mean that great images are not going to require larger
sensors. Cameras like the newly announced Nikon superzoom P1000 will
be all a "serious" photographer needs. And currently "unusable" high
ISOs will suddenly become viable with AI post-processing.
