As unllikely as it seems, this article suggests it would be possible to builda high-res camera with a SINGLE pixel.

I hope that the proposed camera does not suffer from "bad pixel".

Well, why could they not use one great big giant pixel? Maybe a two inch square one. A round one that largewould probably give to much of a fish-eye effect.

:homey:

. . . . ah, but they could provide a 100% redundancy by adding a backup pixel !!!

Or they could have enormous dynamic range by having two active pixels, like a Fuji S2, or DOUBLE the dynamic range by having FOUR pixels.

Yeah, having "one" solid pixel instead of8 million tiny pixels is anytime better!

But I agree with previous posters, that once you get a dead pixel; finish! :!:Pureand solid black photosevery time. :lol:

Another:

What happens if you get a hot pixel? :?


Or perhaps the ISO performance would be sooo good that there will be no such thing as hot pixels anymore? (Or a hot pixel?? :G)Hopefully that noise levels will be seriously low...you don't want to have even a pixel of noise in there!!

RE: ONE "bad" pixel ("hot", "stuck", "dead", whatever)

I guess we should always follow the old wisdom:

"Never put all your eggs in ONE basket"

All other questions aside, I don't think I am ready for the time it would take to clean all those mirrors.
