The new Sietz camera boasts 160 megapixels. That's actually really scary. It means some dude on the corner of the building can take a picture of the street, and later search through it to see that you were picking your nose.
The camera also has many of the other features you'd expect of a $32,000 camera, including a 1/20,000th shutter, 300MB/second read-out, and a ISO 500-10,000 range. It goes on sale in 2007.
