21,250 x 7,400 res. Not bad. The dust on your lens never looked so good!

That's the image area of 39 Cinema Displays (30" of course).

You need this to view your photos:

There is a donkey with solar panels that you train to follow you around.

I have just snorted tea out through my nose reading that comment. :D Now my nose is burnt and my keyboard soaked. Damn funny though! :D

I wonder if the donkey is 64bit.

Heres a carrying case for the camera:

Ahh. Brings back the gold ol' days (http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/cwphtml/cwtake.html) of photography where you needed a wagon to take pictures.:eek:

Seriously though, 160 megapixels! Wow. That could make a wall-sized print. Its really amazing that they got it as small as they did.

I still wait for the "35mm SLRs will still give you a better image quality than that" comment.

My question is, do the carrots to feed the donkey come with the package, or are they an extra purchase? Usually one or two accessories you'll need to buy seperately.

As noted on the website:

Accessories: coming soon

I'm sure that is why the accessories page is still absent. They haven't compiled all the details surrounding the donkey and his nutrition.

Hopefully they will be rechargeable.

It would be cooler if the Mac was IN the camera... otherwise, why not just use a MacBook which has its own power?

Yeah, bring that along, and wear giant clown shoes. Better bring a book, too--you'll be a while.
