Gotta agree with Dawg. We just got a new 42"/106.5 cm LCD to go with the new house. We went with an LCD because Plasma TVs have problems and short life spans when used at over 6,000 feet elevation. Our local cable company supplies the major US network channels and several of the big cable channels in HD. It makes a big difference. It's got all the whistles and bells-- SD card reader, PC input, etc., but I have yet to use them as my significant other has the TV set on HGTV and I don't dare change it!

Boily, here's a good web page which attempts to answer your question about the megapixel equivalent of the human eye. You have to take into account the anatomical and physiological factors... the number of photoreceptors, the fact that we have 2 eyes and see in stereo and the fact that we don't see in fixed images and the visual input is constantly being processed by the brain. This one source suggests that assuming we use a nominal 120 degree field of view, the human eye is equivalent to about 576 megapixels.

Greetings Morag,

Interesting question. I believe the general consensus or at least among somescientists that the eye has a resoution of about 125 million pixels.

As you know, the eye has rods and cones. It is only the cones can discern color - there are three kinds - lets call them Reg Green and Blue.The Rods work a bit slower than cones but they are what detect motion. They also can detect differences in luminance down to 1 photon.

When you conside this and calculate the information on the size of a normal human eyeball, you get resolution of 125,000,000.

Talk to you later,

Ron Baird

Thanks RonBaird! So how about you pass that info to the big guys at Kodak and see if we can get that kind of resolution in their next camera?:blah:

And of course my XBOX 360, which as you might notice, needs to go in for repair! :X

Nice units Brut and Bursie! It took me and the wife quite a while to decide to go ahead with this purchase. In the end the old 35" set dieing made the decision for us. LOL
