The initial pictures sent so far are from their "HazCams" - 1Meg sensors. As bandwidth is very limited, these were down-sized to 64*64 pics for the first images.
This is the 360-degree panoramic view from NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars as seen by its mast navigation cameras. The main imaging sensors are by "Truesense".

And Curiosity also tweets!
