Digital Camera technology is ever evolving and as the technology gets better the prices come down. For those who are looking for the Ultimate Digital Camera check out the 160 Megapixel Seitz 6×17 Digital Camera on CyberNet News. This camera will be selling in 2007 with both a mobile and studio version starting at $36K & $46K respectfully!
Here are the specs:
- 300 MB raw data per second!
- 48-bit color depth
- ISO range from 500 to 10,000
- up to 6×17 digital image (160 million pixels/160 mega pixels @ a resolution of 7,500 x 21,250 pixels)
- 640×480 resolution display touch screen
This camera also comes with a ‘Mac mini’ [1.66Hz Intel Core Duo (2 MB Cache, 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X, Windows XP)] to process as well as store the images which at this high of a resolution are going to be somewhere in the neighbourhood of 1 GB! From the CyberNet News site are a couple links to pictures taken with other high resolution cameras (high speed connection recommended). Plan on spending quite a bit of time exploring (panning and zooming) these two pictures:
