Alfie,

Thanks for sharing, interesting!

It is a 1.8 giga pixel camera, that is 1 800 million pixel. Really a lot!

Large commercial cameras can be up to 190 million pixel, e.g. Sinar, using their CCD sensor with shifting technology, where the sensor is mechanically shifted e.g. 4 times to increase the over all resolution (and sometimes also used for e.g. color improvements)

My best
Bo

Oh yes!
Remember that by the time there is a public release, it has been in test for long and in practical use by the 3-letter agencies for years.
This will eventually trickle down to us amateur photographers for our enjoyment, just as digital photography did.

Have a great time

Guess I'll have to quit my nude sunbathing.

Then again, anyone who surreptitiously views my nude body is getting the punishment they deserve!

And I think I'll start. Serve them right if they can't take a joke.

This is one of the problems that spying imposes on the spy - those awful things that you come across that you can't unsee.

Here is a sample of the software they use

Watch the video: Welcome to SOCET GXP v4.0

Wonder how much this software package costs?

So when does Skynet go online and become self-aware?

Just kidding.

Pretty amazing! I'm going to have to watch that video at home.

It is online now but with the new enchnced version and is part of our goverments DRONE program here in the States. We are being watched all the time now, by many different govermental agencies (federal, state & local). Soon large companies will be using DRONE's to collect additional information on our individual habits and movements. We really do not know just how far this technology has been developed today.

Surveillance of your personal habits is already much closer than you think.

For example:

DVR/cable boxes that have cameras and face recognition to determine what kind of mood you're in, so your viewing experience can be customized to the moment. (Verizon)

Phones that track exactly where you are and offer you opportunities to earn money as a secret shopper - i.e., text message appears - "We see there is a Storefront X at your 2 o'clock and 10 feet - we will credit your Paypal account 5 dollars if you take a picture of the shelf with diaper brand Y." (Field Agent for iPhone)

Cameras that scan your appearance, check you in on Facebook at that location (!), and offer you discounts based on your social media and shopping habits that are publicly known. (Facedeals)

You don't need a drone at 40,000 with a gagillion MP recon camera pack. The war for privacy is already lost. We just need to acknowledge it and start mooing as the consumer cows we are.
