    160MP big enough for you?

    If you have a spare $50K to blow, and really want some cool landscape photos, then this is the camera for you. This thing is a 6x17 panorama digital camera that can produce a 160 megapixel image in one second. Take a look at how big it is! It makes me feel better about the stuff I shoot with.

    OK so now you've spent the 50K on the camera, how much do you have to pay someone to help you carry it around.

    The funny thing about the picture is it would probably NEVER be used that way (portrait orientation). It is a panorama camera.

    I guess they shot it that way so they didn't have to use a wide angle lens

    Looks like you would need 2 tripods, a couple of monkeys and a few umpa-lumpas to support it.
