Ok, we will take the nice digital camera, and have them running in a high radiation area ( 100 G/H) along with a Vidicon and valve based camera. Which one will still be working in 5 minutes without any problems, and which one will still be running a year later.

Now guess why there are no nuclear clean-up robots.

Oh, a 100sqfm relics of a dinosaur age camera you mean ?

With these it will be smaller, like a computer is smaller once the transistors were connected together by silicon instead of copper.
