In the same breath of me shouting about a 10-megapixel camera phone I read on Gizmodo that Fuji’s, Nixon D80 and Canon Rebel Xti challenger will only be 6-megapixel.  Have Fuji gone mad you ask?  Well according to the guys over at DP review they don’t think so.  Instead of continuing the ive got more megapixels than you war they have decided in split the sensors – different sensors for different light. Perhaps soon all camera’s will be made this way?
