I wonder how are you going to construct a Bayer RGB pattern out of it. :-)

Perhapsit should be like x3 technology with 3 layers of silicon (Blue, green, and red!)

Or perhaps it could be like a piece of film. :idea:

No, you would have one of those color wheel things in front of it with red, green, and blue sectors, and a little motor to turn it...

Sounds rather logical. Would it slow down the capturing speed? (Sounds like it could)

Imagine that it would need to expose 3 times. (One for red, one for green, and one for blue) :lol:

I think Tom has the solution. He must have been talking to the engineers at Acme Labs who are now designing an upgrade of the Amce 3000. Instead of the 3000Mpixel sensor now being used, there will be a single large pixel. The lens will be eliminated and replaced by a mirror array which can change its focal length from 8 to 8000mm (equiv). Since it operates as a pinhole camera (each mirror is pinhole size), there is infinite depth of field.
