It's not what it can do in teh cam (even though that is impressive), it's what you can do in software afterwards.

I'm not too sure what they've stated is true.
They haven't stated in the specs the number of pixels for the cameras.
From what I've seen in all cameras at work, if a camera has 4 megapixels, the effective pixels is around 2.5m, and for a 6 megpixel camera the effective pixels is around 4m.

(Note: this is not the exact figure, but approximate to what I've seen on the boxes of the products.)
