Not so tiny 160 Megapixel camera

160 megapixel!While most digital camera makers are making their cameras smaller and smaller Seitz has decided to go in another direction. They have just released a camera that is 19” x 6” x 3” and weighs 6lbs. The advantage to the rather large size is the ability to take 6 x 17 panoramas at 160 megapixels.

One rather large problem for the rather large camera is the size of the photos. Each picture takes up about 1 gigabyte, so storage of more than a few shots is a challenge. The solution is that the camera sends photos right to a specifically configured Mac Mini via gigabit Ethernet.
