The 160MP Digital Camera: It’s All In The Details

The 160MP Digital Camera: It’s All In The Details

I thought things were getting ridiculous with compact digital cameras offering more than 10 Megapixels (MP) but it’s all small cheese compared to the Seitz 6x17 digital snapper which can capture images at up to 160MP.

To put that in context, each image taken at full resolution weighs in at 900MB so you better be packing a bag full of SD Cards. Colour depth is rated at 48-bit so you can drool over all those richly textured and massively-sized landscape shots you can process later on.

There is also one other small difference between this and other digital cameras: size. As you can see from the photo, you’ll not be doing any sneaky paparazzi work at the local night club. Still, considering it costs around £21,500, you won’t be able to afford the cover charge anyway. Maybe they should team this up with the world's biggest digital picture frame.

The best news of that camera is that the price point for 60MP will start dropping to the $6-10K range pretty soon. Then I get to upgrade. Yeah!!!


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
