            70MP is a bit deceiving. It is 70MP around the entire arc of the photo, so the shot itself could be very wide but not very tall.

            The _best_ Cannon digital camera is only 11.1 MP. And costs around AU$16000(http://www.canon.com.au/products/vis...lr/eos1ds.html)

            All that aside, its a cool idea, but mostly useless for applications in the home unless you put it in the middle of the room!

              I'd like to mount something like this on the house and have the photo's uploaded to a private site. I could see who was in my drive way while I was on vacation or something.

                  I am not mistaken, their PDF file for the press explains how it is handled for the internet.

                    Having a huge megapixel count is largely irrelevant to image quality - it's the SIZE of the photoreceptors that makes the biggest difference.

                    The newer Canon Digital SLR cameras (EOS 300D, 10D, 1D MkII & IDs) produce stunning image quality because the CMOS sensors have (relative to consumer digicams) huge photoreceptors, which means that the images they produce are almost completely noiseless (signals from one photoreceptor do not interfere with their neighbours).

                    70MP is very impressive, but if the sensor is the size of a postage stamp the picture quality will be horrible...
