Seitz' 160-megapixel camera may be overkill

I believe this camera has appeared in a more limited fashion before, but now you can actually click a buy button, assuming you’ve got $44,000 burning a hole in your pocket. My guess is that it’s for product photography and large-format printing (think billboards), because size aside, its ISO is limited to 100-400 and at full resolution (7500×21250) it takes a full second to expose. Slowtastic! But that’s the price you pay for having an image that would cover a bank of 8 monitors.
