160 megapixels…

Holy Cow! You can only put two images on a two GIG card. And you are gonna need one of Scott’s monster machines to work with it. But…. ooooh… can you imagine the possibilities.

Seitz 6×17 Digital shoots at 160 megapixels – Engadget: “When we first spotted this new cam from Seitz, our jaws hit the floor and rebounded a few times. No, it’s not the highest megapixel count we’ve seen, but this megalith of a camera shoots at 160 megapixels to create a native 6 x 17-cm image, is packed with an ISO range from 500 to 10,000, a read-out speed of 300MB per second, and a shutter speed of 1/20,000th second. So the next question is, how are you going to store such huge image files (nearly 1 GB per uncompressed full panorama), certainly not on your off-the-shelf 16GB SDHC card, nor the upcoming 64GB CompactFlash cards — but rather via gigabit Ethernet to Seitz’s ‘state-of-the-art computer system’, which translates to a decked out Mac mini.”
