Newest 'biggest digital camera in the world'.
« on: November 17, 2017, 09:35:08 AM »
Here's a link with a few details on the 3,024 MP camera. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/11/17/562365248/the-largest-digital-camera-in-the-world-takes-shape

Of course it isn't as sharp as an 85mm Art but some might find it interesting anyway.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

A camera with that high a resolution will require a very stable tripod.   ;)
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

I'd hate to be the one looking for hot pixels and dead pixels in that lot!

Walking along the Appalachian Way and see a humble Sony shooter with his new A9....."Call that a camera? THIS is a camera...."

OK best Princess Bride reference gets a free custom 20" x 30" print of ay of your images. But it has to be worked in with skill and dexterity, we might even have to have a vote on it too. (And I won't get the print out to you until early next year).

I'm wondering how I could ever use one of those but for now I rest well and dream of large sensors.

I had to write in a new character ...

Inigo Montoya: That Synoptic, he can fupp.
Fezzik: Fupp, fupp… I think he like to pop at us.
Inigo Montoya: Probably he means no coloration.
Fezzik: He’s really very short on aberration.
Inigo Montoya: You have a great gift for rendering.
Fezzik: Yes, yes, some of the time.
Synoptic: Enough of DR and NR.
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, are there sharpness ahead?
Fezzik: If there are, we all be dead.
Synoptic: No more exposure now, I mean it.
Fezzik: Anybody want a copy?

A camera with the largest sensor is the greatest thing in the world - except for a nice MLT - mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomatoes are ripe. They're so perky, I love that.
