Who woulda thunk it? The Chinese company Penchan has developed a camera with a whopping 5.5 Terapixel resolution, or in layman’s terms, 5,500,000 megapixels. Yes, really. We just got off the phone to Canon and Nikon and it’s safe to say, they’re petrified.
When we told Hasselblad about Penchan’s new product, they vowed to get out of the industry as fast as their little Swedish legs could carry them.
But, to obviously soften the blow to their competitors, they encased it in a powder blue cover and painted a little penguin on. Those darlings, they really *do* care about their rivals’ feelings.
