The eye is a much, much more sophisticated instrument than any camera. The eyes are able to look around a scene and dynamically adjust based on the subject matter, whereas cameras capture a single still image. The eye on an average has a shutter speed of around 1/50 of a second. Whereas, the shutter-speed of a camera can vary from as little as 1/4000 of a second to as high as 2 seconds and some cameras may even have a shutter speed of a few hours. Most current digital cameras have 5-20 megapixels. The human eye is able to resolve the equivalent of a 52 megapixel camera.
