    The Swiss made Seitz 6x17 digital 160 megapixel camera!

    • Create a high-resolution (160 million pixel) 6x17 digital scan in just one second
    • Capture action thanks to a minimum exposure speed of 1/2000 sec. (per pixel) - images full of speed, motion and life!
    • Benefit from an outstanding image quality in virtually all light situations:
      • - 16-bit per channel (48-bit RGB) colour depth
      • - anti-blooming
      • - low noise
      • - dynamic range of 1:2,600 (11 f-stops)
      • - Seitz image optimisation algorithms
    • Use world-class large format Schneider or Rodenstock lenses - or reuse your existing set of lenses
    • Process a high-definition high dynamic range panorama directly in the RAM of the computer (single-pass, multi-pass)
    • Use a very user-friendly software with very advanced features
    • Take advantage of the latest technology in tablet PCs for image control, display and storage
    • Remove the Seitz D3 digital scan back and use it with the Roundshot D3, the Alpa family of medium format cameras
    • (Alpa 12 SWA, WA, TC, XY) or with other medium or large format cameras (in the future)

    Almost positive I've seen that one before... I can't see many people ever actually using that though.

    LOL... yeah it's not a dSLR entry level camera and it doesn't have "Nikon" or "Canon" stamped on it anywhere. ;)

    I'm more thinking it is a little on the awkward shape side and it seems to be meant to be handheld.

    Hand maneuvered... on a ball head. It's mostly for tripod use IMO. But I could hold that NP at all. Ya just gotta think outside the prescribed box.

    Well once my dad gets his woodworking shop up and running I do plan on going up there to build my next LF camera... Maybe I could make that one handheld...

    Well just because the photos are big please don't think this is anywhere near as big as a box camera for crying out loud. Did you even read the specs?

    This scan back 6x17 camera is extremely fast. The image results are comparable to a one-shot digital or film back. This is possible thanks to a very high read-out speed of 300 MB per second - 100x faster than for any existing scan back. The fastest exposure speed is 1/2'000 per pixel - or one second for the entire 6x17 scan at full resolution!


    I'm sorry but I just don't understand your line of commentary. It's like you saw a porsche and said.. Naw, I can't fit my family of 12 in it so it's useless and no one will use it.

    Ummm, okeee

    I think this was what I was actually trying to argue against for the handheld thing.

    Oh you think the hand grip looking style are out of place? I think that's mostly for ball-head adjustments or maybe on a monopod? Anyway I like the grips... it looks kewl. :D

    I'm of course much more impressed with the 160 megapixels, the 16bit recordings, and the modular design.

    I'm not going to buy one though. They're too expensive for me - just for a camera... I just thought it was kewl and knew there were a few peeps here who are interested in this kinda stuff.

    Not dissing on the post I'd love to have one I just don't think I'd ever use it when I could just shoot 8X10 negs and scan but maybe I'm not thinking of some great advantage.

    You mean like... it's digital so "film" is instant and virtually free instead of $20 a shot and days to process? :lmao:

    Last time I processed film it didn't take more than half hour maybe an hour to develop... I guess the film cost is an issue but come on the thing costs let's just say $25000 dollars (I don't know the exchange rates) I don't think I'd spend more than $10000 on a LF camera and a lens. That leaves me with $15000 for film and developing... Film does have it's advantages I'm sure the price on this thing will come down but right now it is no more than a toy for the rich.
