The point I'm making here isn't that physics is wrong, it's that you're saying that a camera absorbs light and there's a finite limit that's nearly there, leveling off to its best possible capability. And I"m saying that you're absolutely right, with today's technology and the calculations we use to describe collecting photons, you're right. *BUT* when you change those calculations by introducing a new sensor material or by the use of better electronics, that those calculations will no longer be valid. It will be the future,

The number of photons that reflect from the subject to the detector is not a function of the level of technology or the materials used for detecting it, but a function of the physical reality, laws of physics.

Ie. no change in materials of technology will increase the number of photons that exists there to be detected.
