white shadow: It looks like a Canon 5D MkII with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L MkII. I am sure Canon would be interested to buy it for their testimonial advertisement.

The memory card would then be a CF card. I am surprise it manage to survive the acid in the stomach. Interesting! Wonder what brand it is.

The story doesn't say that the alligator ate the camera. I'd be surprised if it did.

Do we have any idea on when the full review is likely to appear on DPReview? Thanks

No doubt this can also sync with a Microsoft Kin too.

peevee1: So, whose is the sensor?

What's wrong with the English in peevee1's sentence?

hc44: I'm gonna go against the grain here and say it's a compromise which didn't have to be made. You shouldn't have to re-invent the whole camera because of a sensor change. A sensor can be though of in abstract terms as a plug-able component with a fixed I/O interface. Resolution can be a variable which the rest of the camera can be made to work with as a variable. A hi-res raw image can be down scaled, sometimes you send the hi sometimes the low, you have the option. The engineers shot themselves in the foot when they began the project allowing for a fixed res sensor only, and did so knowing technology advances. In the 60s the Apollo project got a man on the moon in under a decade, imagine how fast pasted their project was, but now they can't change a camera sensor in the space of 8 years.

I reckon there's factors in this that you don't even realise or understand. This *is* rocket science after all. A given sensor would have to go through tons of testing before it could be deemed reliable and suitable.
