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.
