    From the don't-hold-your breath dept......
    "Canon claims to have developed a [0]digital camera sensor
    with a staggering 120-megapixel resolution. The APS-H sensor ��� which is
    the same type that is used in Canon's professional EOS-1D cameras ���
    boasts a ridiculous resolution of 13,280 x 9,184 pixels. The CMOS sensor
    is so densely packed with pixels that it can capture full HD video on
    just one-sixtieth of the total surface area. However, don't hold your
    breath waiting for this baby to arrive in a camera. Canon unveiled a
    50-megapixel sensor in 2007, but that's not made it any further than the
    labs to date." It's probably not going too far out on a limb to say that
    the any-day-now rumored announcement of an update to the 1D won't include
    this chip, but such insane resolution opens up a lot of amazing
    possibilities, from cropping to cheap telephoto to medium and large
    format substitution. Maybe I should stop fantasizing about owning a
    full-frame 1D or 5D and redirect my lust towards 120 megapixels.
