We had color cameras in the 1950's for cryin out loud. I get better pictures at Wal Mart for cryin out loud. I agree with you.
You want to send 700 5-megapixal full coloured uncompressed images over an antenna about as powerful as a cell phone to an orbiting satellite several thousand kilometers away and then transmit that back to Earth 1.2 billion km away in a mission designed to last for 3 hours?

BTW, these first images are the raw, unprocessed low res images. There are higher resolutions pictures that will probably be put up later.
