Big photo sensor full of mega-pixels

It’s been quite some time already that a company named Red prepares not only a photo camera but a full photo & video system with a very high level of configurability. I recently stumbled upon the description of the various sensors that intend to included in their cameras.

See the size of the larger sensor: The RED 617 Mysterium Monstro sensor has 261,352,000 pixels (about the same number as sensitive cells at the back of a human eye).

The images to come out of it will certainly be monstrous as suggested by the sensor name.
