There are arrays capable of gigapixels though no single camera on this list takes pictures of more than 416 MP.

Oh, and Nokia has a new phone with a 41 MP camera.

This camera takes 50 gigapixel pictures but it does it by combining a hundred 500 megapixel images.

@flutherother To add on, arrays differ from those that use a single camera to snap a series of photos a split-second apart and stitch them together.
