One single pixel out (currently the best have 2-6 million) and there is a color problem. It's very difficult to manufacture such a CCD for professional use. So it's going to take a long time for the prices on digital to come down, where the quality is still good enough for professional use. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch We are born naked, wet and hungry.
