How Compact Is Too Compact?

The Samsung 16.2MP is compact, but when will it be too compact? Today? Tomorrow? Question mark?

Here at LabLabs, we're interested in answering questions you're never going to ask. Here are today's answers:

  1. I'm wearing a lab coat
  2. Yes, I will go to the dance with you
  3. I'm also wearing lab underwear
  4. A tiny scrap of metal with no actual features is too compact

There you have it. Research doesn't lie. Well, usually not. Or maybe it does. I don't know. Fine, I'll use the polygraph and we'll settle this.

[16 grueling hours later]

Guh. I hate setting up the polygraph machine. Anyway, the machine's broken. But we don't need data and hard evidence to prove that over-compacting a camera makes it undesirable. 

I've just received a note from legal that we DO need data and hard evidence to prove it. So what we're going to do is put one of these cameras in our in-house car crusher and see if we can get some results.

[16 grueling hours later]

OK, that machine's broken too. Science is hard. I'm going to drop by the development department and see if we can get some more funding.

[16 grueling hours later]

That was grueling. Short answer: no, we can't get more funding for the project. You'll just have to take our word for it. About the compactedness thing.

I've received another note from legal saying that my butt is big. Which is just not true. But they have no evidence.

Ah. Another note from legal claims they have sufficient evidence. Because they...oh....because they took several photos using the Samsung 16.2MP.
