    Default 111 MegaPixel CCD Delivered

    Drool my friends...

    http://www.eetimes.com/news/semi/sho...leID=189500300

    From the article :
    "Dalsa Semiconductor has fabricated an image sensor with more than 111 million pixels. The company claims the 4 x 4-inch charge-coupled device, configured as 10,560 x 10,560 pixels, is the world's highest-resolution image sensor and the first to break the 100 million-pixel barrier."

    Their Sensor size is 4" by 4" in size. Not sure even a medium format camera can fit this sensor. This sensor look more for military use or for arial photgraphy.

    "STA developed the chip for the Astrometry Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory with funding from the Navy's Small Business Innovation Research program. Dalsa manufactured the device for STA at its wafer fabrication facility in Bromont, Quebec."

    this says what it's meant for =)

    why drool? 3MP is more than enough for most people (just like 35mm film is more than enough for most!). few people print larger than 8R/A4.
