The average megapixel camera is between 10-14.1 megapixels. You canget some non-SLR camera's in the 16 megapixel zones. anywhere above that you get into professional cameras, …which get pricey!! and you need to buy optional lenses. -as of Q1 2011 That person's answer doesn't exactly answer the question does it? The answer is, I believe, the Seitz (made in Switzerland) which has a whopping 160 MP, and can cost up to $36,266 US dollars!~JeremeK

The first digital camera to be widely marketed to consumers was the Apple QuickTake 100. It held 8 images at resolution 640 x 480, was fixed-focus, connected only to a Mac (an…d it didn't have media cards--you had to connect the camera to a computer to get the pictures off), and cost $750. The reaction was very simple: "You want $750 for THAT? No freakin' way!" On the professional side, we had Better Light backs for view cameras. They cost $35,000 and had to be tethered to a computer in use. They were also "scanning" backs. Imagine taking a small flatbed scanner, that has to make three scans--one each for red, green and blue parts of the image--and putting it on your bellows camera in place of a film holder. Better Light is still in business and still makes these backs, but they're not as expensive now and the new ones scan all three channels in one pass.
yes the pinhole was the very first camera invented!
