Eastman Kodak Company has introduced a 50 Megapixel CCD image sensor for professional photography. The Kodak KAF-50100 image sensor features a small pixel size, which reduces 'click-to-capture' time for improved camera response, lowers power consumption for improved battery life, and improves colour fidelity.

In an aerial photo of a field 1-½ miles across, a 50 Megapixel camera can detect an object about the size of a small notebook computer (1 x 1ft).

The Kodak sensor utilises the company's Kodak Truesense 6.0 micron full frame CCD technology platform, which increases both the resolution and camera performance. Based on a 6.0 micron pixel, which reduces pixel size by 28 per cent while retaining key performance parameters, the platform provides increased data throughput for faster frame rate, a reduced 'click-to-capture' time for improved camera response, lower power consumption for improved battery life, and improved colour fidelity. With an 8176 x 6132 pixel array, the 50 million pixel sensor provides the highest resolution available in the popular 48 x 36mm optical format used in medium format photography.
