Wah lao eh!! We are only at 10 mega pixel. That's 100x the 10 mega pixel resolution!

But I think at 20 mega pixel it is more than enough liao as we found out through history that 35mm was more widely adopted than medium format because we do not need to print that big!

So what is the next step?

Heh heh... in Star Trek, the future of photography moves beyong 2D. It's called Holography. Pictures are taken in 3D and can be displayed in 3D either in your computer screen or can be replicated in the Holodeck whereby you can actually recreate the scene and move in it!! :lovegrin:

Really unimaginable. I wonder why cameras with more than 10 megapix are not becoming the norm, considering that we already have technology for 1000 megapix? Hmmm, imagine wad a macro with that cam can do, you can virtually see everything!!! :D

Actually, 100+ pixels technology has been in existence for a few years liao. Just that the pixel sensors are place on composite chips and not on one big chips. Easier to produce and replace too. The sensors on the Hubble Telescope are built this way too, think I read somewhere...

http://hubblesite.org/reference_desk/glossary/hst.shtml

The Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 has four CCDs; each contains 640,000 pixels. The light collected by each pixel is translated into a number. These numbers (all 2,560,000 of them) are sent to ground-based computers, which convert them into an image.
That's about 2.5MP altogether

Check this out.

2.5 GPix, took more than 5 days to put everything together!

An excerpt, "TNO developed a sophisticated approach to merge the many images - all 600 of them. The photos were taken automatically using a modern consumer camera and a powerful 400 mm lens. The camera was positioned automatically using a computer-controlled pan-tilt unit...."
