Default New Camera Sensor 1000x More Sensitive Than Current Sensors

Saw this today. Don't know if it's old news or not, you guys are much more up on the tech aspect of the game than I am. Interesting though could start a whole different view of the industry...(No pun intended)

After all, this contraption started the digital age of photography in 1975. Look where we are now. My E500 may have come next...

Joe Wisniewski says it's bunk, but although he's very knowledgeable he always says that. Sometimes I think that if he were alive at the time he would have said that about news of the Wright brothers' flight.

You can see a good discussion here:

PS: I hadn't seen that photo of the first Kodak digital camera in a while - thanks for the reminder! IIRC the digital data was stored on that cassette tape. I'm not making that up.

True, there was no such thing as a PC back then. there wasn't even a fax machine. Images were stored on the cassette and played back on a TV. And now look where we are.

And although the wright brothers were first to fly "in this country", It's been known out in the real world that Richard Pearce was the first to fly. Built his own engine on his farm and had proper controls not flexing wings.
