I'll see you, and then I'll raise you.
60 MP sensor, first full-frame 645 frame sensor
"The P65+ digital back starts at US $39,990"
I'll finish posting after I come to.
I read $49K not 39...
But to some of us $50K isn't all that much and a job or two will pay it off.
from the article:
The P65+ digital back starts at US $39,990 and can also be had with a Phase One camera system starting at $41,990.
but still a camera back that cost more than a regular car is kinda crazy but if you have a job that gives like 50k a month maybe you can afford it well what does a newbie like me know about professional gears :blushing:
btw a 60 mpixel photo would be huge probably more than 100 MB so would the camera "lag" after taking a shot?
Why you thinking of taking it off to the track and firing off at 10fps?
A large sensor probably comes with more than the simple 100mb buffers we have in our SLRs
There are other possible markets for these high-end sensors that just still cameras. A few of the story about last weeks Kodak 50gb sensor release talking about aerial application said that the Kodak sensor was able to see a lab top computer or down to 1 sq foot on a 1-1/2 sq mile field, can us say U2. Also the movie industry is still mostly film for now but is changing to digital too
"360MB 16 bit files..."
I dunno. I doubt it actually. I think that's the engineering you're paying for - probably some kind of massively parallel bus.
I shot allot with a 24MP Hasselblad connected to a Mac Pro Quad. There was zero lag and shot to shot times were faster than even a mad-man could wind a standard film back.
I'm just a hobby guy too but if I had a business that needed or could benefit from that back at $40K (thanks for the correction) I don't think I would hesitate. I spent more then 40K on the A2s I set up that you may have read me mentioning. That was just one job too. Tho I did get to use it a bunch more times before I sold it off. Ask if you're interested I love to brag about it.
Anyway, I almost always have the same reactions as you to stuff like this ($40K... R U FRIKKING KIDDING?!??!) but I'm always reminded by guys who actually know what their doing that if it makes you money then it's worth it. So I thought I do the change-up this time.
... and they are useful to take very nice product photographs of .... 60MP cameras ...
hehe if you talk about aerial application i think Fairchild ccd 595 at 81 Mpixel on 80.64x80.64 imagine area would probably be even better but of course the price is a bit higher around 100 000
The P65+ lists for $39,990.00 for a Classic One Year Warranty and $42,990.00 for the Three Year Value Added Warranty.
