Q:

What is the highest megapixel camera available?

A:

The highest megapixel DSLR camera available as of 2014 is the Hasselblad H5D 200c. It offers a 50-megapixel sensor, but when the multi-shot function is used, the resolution of images is 200 megapixels. The camera is designed for photographers shooting still shots, since the image capture requires nearly 20 seconds.

The $45,000 cost of the Hasseblad in 2014 keeps it out of the standard consumer market. Nikon features a 36.3-megapixel SLR camera called the D810. The Sony Alpha ILCE-A7 features 36.4 megapixels in a compact camera. Nokia provides a 38-megapixel camera in the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone. Mayima Leaf offers an 80-megapixel camera back that is compatible with some of its cameras.
