    I must be clairvoyant. Seems Samsung has confirmed what I said earlier, the main benefit of more pixels will be achieved by using 2x2 pixel binning (They call it TetraCell technology) to increase dynamic range and reduce noise. The output will be a 16 MPix file.

      Used to be a techie, but its all running much faster than I can (or care too)
      It's taking a photo, Mark, then moments later binning-it after chimping.

      That's true, but in context it's combining, say, 4 pixels worth of data, eg 64MB becomes 16MB as in the Samsung device referenced above. Great isn't it! ��

        There's a certain logic to it, since any sensor with a Bayer array combines information from 4 photo-sites, to create new pixels with colour information. The final 'resolution' of the image is a matter for debate, since each pixel contains information derived from adjacent pixels.

        In other words, all digital colour cameras (except those with Foveon sensors) do a certain amount of 2x2 binning - Samsung are being honest about it!

          I know the feeling

          Have a look at this.
