Must… Take… Deep… Breaths…

I’m trying not to have palpitations at the thought of The Ultimate Awesome Camera That I Will Never, Ever Own:

Some entirely too ingenious hackers have found a reference to the rumored D3X deep within the bowels of Nikon’s D3 firmware. The reference includes a list of resolutions available to the upcoming shooter, and it’s apparently set to max out at a potentially Higgs Boson-inducing 24.4 megapixels. Word has it that this sensor is likely a variant of the megapixel monster behind Sony’s upcoming A900, but since this is all being extrapolated from a few numbers hidden in some firmware, we’re going to try not to get too ahead of ourselves at this point.

You probably can’t hear it, but I’m pining furiously.  If I ever hit the Powerball, this’ll be the first thing I buy. Um, assuming it’s for real, of course.  But it does seem a bit odd that they would stand pat with the D3 having the same megapixels as the D300 (which is pretty awesome in its own right).
