    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    Doesn't everyone scan at at least 1200 dpi? So shouldn't that be 760 gigapixels?

    I'll have to upgrade my RAM from 1 GB to 2.5 TB. If Moore's law holds, I should be able to buy that for my desktop in two decades or so. Of course by then Windows will use 1 TB all by itself, so I will probably need 3.5 TB.

    You should see the size of the cellphone that this camera is built in to. :o
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
