the 60.5-megapixel P 65+ digital back and camera system

For the past few years the highest sensor resolution available was 39 Megapixels, and for many this was regarded as more than enough (your camera phones have usually a 5 megapixel resolution, at most, and anyway an 8 megapixel digicams is far enough to take great pics)

But Phase One has just announced the 60.5-megapixel P 65+ digital back and camera system. That means images with 8,984 x 6,732 pixels resolution which equals 180MB!

Using Sensor+ CCD technology, the cam can give professional photographers higher sensitivity and expanded dynamic range (12.5 f-stops when most cameras go up to 8) as well as 20 percent more live capture area (as compared with 39 megapixel or 50 megapixel 48mm-by-36mm chips currently available or announced) available with coverage of 53.9mm by 40.4mm, enabling full viewfinder coverage and no need for lens magnification.

It will cost a lot : the P 65+ digital back will start at $39,900 and the P 65+ camera system will start at $41,990 – they both will be available by the end of the year
