"The fastest imaging system ever devised has been demonstrated by researchers reporting in the journal Nature. Their camera snaps images less than a half a billionth of a second long, capturing over six million of them in a second continuously.

It works by using a fast laser pulse dispersed in space and then stretched in time and detected electronically.The approach will be instrumental in analysing, for example, flowing blood samples in a search for diseased cells.

What is more, the camera works with just one detector, rather than the millions in a typical digital camera...."

native ISO 1.6 million anyone??

Does that mean it's just 1 pixel? Haha!
It's quite funny how they try and sell the fact that it's 1 pixel only like it's a good thing...

6.1 million photographs may look similar too, with just a bit of difference here and there at small pixel size. It will be hard to do any post production work. ;p
