Seitz just made my jaw dropped with their new 160-megapixel monster, the Seitz 6×17 Digital with the Seitz D3 digital scan back. With its insane megapixel count, it creates cool 6-by-17 (7,500 x 21,250 pixels) panoramic images with every shot. And thanks to its blazing-fast processing power and gigabit Ethernet connection, each image is fed to a Mac Mini in under one second.
What’s crazier is its available ISO setting – 500 to 10,000. Even the highest end of digital SLR could only reach 6,400. It sure makes reaching the camera’s highest shutter speed of 1/20,000 much easier.
Huge things come with huge prices. There are two version available, a Studio and a Mobile version, priced at 26,900 Euro (~US$34,500) and 28,900 Euro (~US$37,000) respectively. Not the kind of toys that we mere mortals could ever afford.
