Megapixel War Update

70 MegapixelThe battle continues with the announcement of a new 70-megapixel sensor from CMOSIS. This sensor takes meaningless specifications to new levels with 70 million pixels. Consequently, it will be able to capture photos of kids, dogs, and cats at an even higher resolution, resolving even the most useless details in full, image-enhancing color. Out-of-focus, poorly exposed photos will now contain even more data, and you will have enough pixels to plaster your kid’s photo over every surface on the planet earth. In a few years, I’m sure we will have the moon covered as well. Good luck and take cover — the Megapixel Wars continue.

    Oh wow cool! This would beat nokia’s lumia1020, if not, they’d be joining the bandwagon then making a unit with such megapixel. That would be awesome!
