    Can ya imagine being just one person in a crowd of thousands yet still being easily identified as being there? Check out the linked crowd image, then pick a face and zoom away. This picture was taken at a Stanley Cup hockey venue with a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera (2100 Mega Pixels.) These cameras are not sold to the public yet are installed in strategic locations. The camera can identify a face among a multitude of people. Consider too that if this type image has been released, that's a pretty good indicator that even better resolution capability is in place.

    In my "quick" scan through, I didn't see a single person looking at their cell phone. If that'd been in the US, you wouldn't have been able to pick out a face, because they would all have been looking down. What is wrong with those Canadians?!?! :l

    In the "border" areas, the immigration folks have multiple camera set ups that record movement. Hey they can probably take pictures of your nose hairs. :eek:
