The Null Device
There is now a 39-megapixel digital camera
on the market. You read that right; 39 megapixels, which would be about 7,212 by 5,408 pixels. The Phase One P45
can also boast a maximum frame rate of 35 frames per second; whether you'd end up using it is another matter, as its image files, weighing in at 117Mb, would pretty quickly fill up even the largest CompactFlash card. Though the existence of cameras of such a high resolution should bring light field photography
somewhat closer to practicality.
I wonder what its dynamic range, thermal noise resistance and low-light performance are like, though; the smaller the pixels are on a CCD, the less sensitive to light they would theoretically tend to be.
