Instead of the common digital camera sensor which records the entire scene at once, the Seitz 6×17'' uses a scanner to literally scan the view through the lens. The end result is 160 megapixel images in a panoramic format. It does the job a bit faster than your average flatbed scanner though, recording a full-sized frame (21 250 x 7500 pixels) in two seconds. It's big, it's heavy (5 kilos if you wish to use it outside a studio) and quite silly, but it turns out huge, amazing photos – and it should, costing as it does $42 000.

160 million pixels of beauty – the only digital 6×17 camera!

Super fast image capture –  300 MB of data per second!
High resolution 6×17 digital images – 160 million pixels
Seitz D3 digital scan back interchangeable with Roundshot D3 camera
World class Schneider lenses on Seitz boards as well as Linhof or Fuji 617 lenses

Easy camera control and image preview + storage with connected tablet PC computer or any 64-bit PC or Mac computer

Powerful capture software for easy camera handling and Seitz raw converter software for professional workflow

ldeal for high resolution landscapes, group photography, fine-art, architecture photography

    It is awesome …resolution, that is 🙂
    As with anything else on the market, thats new or above the rest, it's like working for a black budget program in the middle of nowhere.

    If something goes wrong, you're stuck, and no one can "literally" help you LOL!
    Still, the resolution from this is AWESOME.
