Canon working on 120 Megapixel DSLR

"Regarding the 120 Megapixel DSLR, which is likely using technology first announced back in 2010:

Featuring a resolution of approximately 120 effective megapixels, the SLR camera now being developed will incorporate a Canon-developed high-pixel-density CMOS sensor within the current EOS-series platform, which will realize compatibility with the Company’s diverse interchangeable EF lens lineup. The high-resolution images that the camera will be capable of producing will recreate the three-dimensional texture, feel and presence of subjects, making them appear as if they are really before one’s eyes. The camera will facilitate a level of resolution that is more than sufficient for enlarged poster-sized printout while also enabling images to be cropped and trimmed without sacrificing image resolution and clarity."

It would require a major investment in computer and storage upgrades
I can't see this as anything other than a niche product! 6Mp is fine for most purposes..

Pretty soon the resolution will be so high that all you have to do is point the camera at New York city, then crop individual images from anywhere in the city. One shot and you are done!
