North Korea Enters the Megapixel Wars

800px-Flag_of_North_Korea.svgNorth Korea has entered the Megapixel Wars with a newly designed 280-megapixel sensor. Their supreme leader Kim Jong-un was reported to say, “Our country has the most megapixels, and we will attack anyone who threatens us with all our megapixels.” South Korea immediately went on megapixel alert, with China attempting to diffuse the situation.

The situation was later resolved when it was determined that North Korea had used Photoshop to clone the CMOSIS 70-megapixel sensor, creating a new sensor with four times the resolution. Apparently, no one had explained to North Korea that an effective megapixel deterrent required a functioning sensor. At press time, satellite photos have detected clandestine megapixel research in the western part of North Korea, and President Barack Obama has assured the world that he will protect American interests in the region from the megapixel threat.
