I think that's outstanding, but I think that technology is starting to get a bit out of hand. Soon we'll have have gigapixel cameras inside of a cell phone...and that will be the day I go on a killing spree

Why does really cool technology have to come out right after I buy the shitty version? Not that they have those things sittin on a shelf at Wal-Mart.

the picture of those two people is insanely detailed when zoomed. i've never seen quality from a photo like that in my life.

Cool but how much did it cost to develop it and how much to mass produce

a gigapixel would be 1024 megapixels right?

A+! you win the prize! (yes -- technically it's 1000 mb by definition, but you're correct)

that second camera is pretty fuckin sweet, too jung.
i wish the first one you showed us had a zoom feature like that to demonstrate it's power
