50 Megapixel Camera Sensor CCD Released by Kodak

Just spotted this over at Technology Review:

Kodak have launched a 50 mega pixel CCD sensor.

Fifty million pixels in a 8,176 X 6,132 array!!!

Smaller pixels than ever before, with the promise of better colour rendition from improved pigments, just as sensitive as previous larger pixels, using less power than before AND processed faster than previous CCD camera sensors!

Other modifications and improvements to this sensor have improved the signal-to-noise ratio and increased the read rate – enabling the potential to read one frame per second at 50 megapixels!

Just one snag – the sensor alone will cost $3,500.
