HiRise high-resolution camera set to depart for Mars

Continuing my obsession is an article regarding NASA’s new instrument for capturing the martian surface. Please not that they talk about the number of pixels the instrument will collect at a time, but not what the spatial resolution of each pixel will be, which is actually more important for the end-user. The other important information, that could help us determine the spatial resolution of the imagery, is anticipated scale.
