Fermilab's 500 megapixel digital camera

It didn't take long for someone build a digital camera that could actually use the entire 12GB of storage space available on Pretec's new $15,000 CompactFlash memory card: Fermilab just built a digital camera with a resolution of 500 megapixels. But before you start saving your pennies for one,  the Dark Energy Camera is a one-of-a-kind that is being attached to a telescope in Chile for use in Fermilab's Dark Energy Survey project.
