World's biggest camera takes world's biggest picture

I kid you not, and it's like a shoe box camera from when I was a kid:

My lens is bigger....


Man, I really have some self-esteem issues :P


That stuff is crazy. I still like this thing simply cause it's like trying to hold a two-by-four lengthwise.

DALSA, huh? Considering that they made the first 4K video chip in 1998, it doesn't surprise me that they made that chip.

OH! OH! I get the patent for this idea!

Make that aircraft hangar into a DIGITAL camera obscura by using a solar panel array as the electronic pixels. The voltage created by each solar cell would be the brightness value! I'm a genius. Pat myself on the back. Now I just need three hangars in a semi-circle so I can make an RGB digital camera obscura...
