Dec 3 2009The Future Is Now: 5.5 Terapixel Camera

questionable-camera.jpg

This is a Penchan 5.5 Terapixel camera spotted in China. Sure the lens looks like a plastic rhinestone and it has a penguin humping a rock on the front, but that doesn't mean it can't have 5,500,000 mexapixels, right? It doesn't. Remember: you can't judge a book by it's cover. Especially not on a Kindle cause then you'd judge them all the same!

5.5 Terapixels, Huh?: Mis-Advertising Much [gearfuse]

Thanks to lee, who only sends me things that happened at least a year ago because he gets off on people yelling "OLD!" in the comments.

How ironic that such an awesome camera has a crappy picture...

@1 fail
@2 fail

Haha sirry chinese transatiorns.

@2, Where do you live? New Jersey?
@3, *takes out can of whoop-ass* Don't make me open this.

TOP 10

It would be more convincing if it weren't a hello kitty camera, just sayin

MLIG

The Internet Police have issued this statement.
The higher the lead content of the item the more Pixels it's able to hold.
No need for further discussion.

@4 No senior. 'Twas a fail because they didn't read the whole story.


My TV show 20 Terapixers.

An underwater depth of 20 kilometers.

FAKE!!!!

This is a total photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never BAck Down where Max was on the outs with a mob kingpin, and went to see him at his little italy cafe. Unbeknownst to Max, the waiter served the boss a cup of draino instead of expresso.

Comments are slow today.

11. uh uh, they moving at 20 mirrion teracharacters per secernd.

@ 4+8
sarcasm miss FTL

i live in deeeeeeeeeep so. texas, may as well be mexico, but i see the same kind of crap across the border all the time, same crappy translations too
engrish=spanglish

@13 you sure you got that right? Do I fail or does LSDiesel fail?

@6. That's not hello kitty. Hello kitty is a kitty. That's a penguin.

Hello penguin.

Also:

"texas may as well be mexico"


Bahahah. Sure.


@ cabbo

Everyone fails

Except me!

By sheer comment volume alone.

@14, you all fail.

I fail so hard that I might as well be @I-Kill-Bambi's

fail

I guess CSI now DOES make sense!)

@15 It's hello something... Hello penguin then. One thing it isn't though is 5.5tpx

OLD!

i guess i fail
@ 17 i live in South Texas, and that may as well be mexico, srsly the borders like a few minutes drive away, the amount of bud passing thru is fantastic for me/stoners tho
but fuck all the violence that goes down

few hours drive north and its a different story
"these people aint seen a brown-skinned man since they grandparents bought one"

No this isn't fake everyone, My brother has one, we use it all the time when filming your children

Maybe it's not a real camera but still 5.5 Terapixel... I would picture the shit out of it anyway.

OLD..just sayin

It is not Hello - anything, it is Penchan. I know this not because I am an otaku, but because I read the text on the upper left of the camera.

@LSDiesel careful, he might say something mildly untoward at you.

It's Hello Blue Duck.

That's stolen Hubble Space Telescope technology.

"5,500,000 mexapixels"

MEXAPIXELS? whaaaaaaaaaaa?

Fail! This picture was obviously not taken with Hello Quacker 5.5 terabyte camera. It was probably taken with a 5.5 femtopixel camera. That's 10 to the power of negative 15, just sayin. MLIG

once again not everything from Asia is from "China", can't you see the writing??? it's Japanese ignorant people...

technically, you don't need a 5.5 terapixels camera to create a 5.5 terapixels picture. BIG interpolation of a 5.5 megapixels pictures can do the work.
Don't care about the picture quality!

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Except that Penchan is a Chinese manufacturing company... just sayin.

Geez guys, it's a toy. You can write anything on a toy, who really cares?!

@31: I thought I had been the only one noticing that. MEXAPIXELS? wtf?
Anyway, I'm getting one of those on christmas :D

@ 33

You mean that place that I get my Hentai pron from?

http://flatspin.blogspot.com/2007/04/55-terapixel-camera.html

#38 is right. That's a toy camera, so it can have whatever the hell it wants written on it. My sister has a toy music player that says "90 TB" on it.

is it even a question if it's a toy or not? OFCOURSE ITS A TOY! Nothing that 'powerful' could be that cute...other than the GW and I... ^_^


this is thank you.. :)

You can also get it in pink.

So if we augment 1,000 terapixels, what would we get? An X-Ray camera? Something that could stare the clothes off of us? A terapixel camera sounds too good to be true unless they engineeredbit with nano parts. By the way? 1,000 terabytes is 1 Exa, or Exobyte now that's unlimited. So then 1,000 Terapixels is 1 Exapixel. Imagine the pictures or images on a camera like that. So much for a camera that might be able to look around the corner!!!!!

I would like to have my hands on a camera like this. This goes beyond That Gigapixel Project. So then one million gigapixels would be a petapixel? Already a Terapixel sounds too good to be true!!! I'm skeptical. It's like something that would visualize images beyond the X-Ray or a CATSCAN, PET,and/or an MRI.
The Terabyte Camera in the pic above? Looks like a plastic toy camera that's why I don't believe it.
