    Take a cheap consumer scanner at 2400 ppi and scan an A4 document = 558 MP camera.

    Just mount a lens to your flatbed scanner. It works on the same principle. Which means... handheld shots may not be that feasible...

    The idea isn't new - scanning backs have been used for ages. The novelty of this camera may lie in its compact size.

    The 1s acquisition time is not the exposure time ("faster shutter"). It's the time the scanhead takes to travel across the picture projected by the lens.

    The scanning back can be mounted on a roundshot right?

    A reminder that the highest resolution right now is still the GigaPxl camera.

    The scanning technology is not new, and taking an image requires about 30 seconds.

    Use google, lah.

    Or read the short version on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_camera_back
    Or build one yourself: http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/tech/scanner.html

    It will be like shooting with Large Format cameras. Every shot you take, you change one 16GB CF card.
