Photo Chip

A company called Foveon has developed a new computer chip for digital photo technology. The new chip allows twice the resolution of a 35-millimeter camera. The resolution is so good, that a four-by-eight-foot enlargement of a picture shows no dots -- or pixels -- in the image. Linda talks with Greg Gorman, a Los Angeles based photographer who tried out the prototype camera chip.
