Sadly this technology announcement isn’t for a new consumer based DSL, but for a surveillance camera. Engadget is reporting that the prototype sensor is 19 x 28mm the same size as sensors used in current 35mm cameras. For resolution junkies this is mouthwatering news. Personally I’m looking forward to an announcement from Canon about their next generation full size sensor dSLR. Rumor has it that it will be 22 megapixels. With my eye on the prospect of 22MP this 50MP announcement caught me off guard. If anything it’s great to know what is possible, even if it won’t be released as part of a widely available product for sometime.
