Something big? How about a digital 8x10 for all the Ansel Adams wannabes?
Finally, some one is thinking about my needs.
"huh Houston, what's the cost on that item going to be? We need a number now, just take what you have and give us a number." Sorry, in honour of being totally abused by the film "Gravity" I watched Apollo 13 again. After a movie like Apollo 13, how anyone could make a film like "Gravity" is beyond me.

There has to be a photographer somewhere with the desire fore one. Or at least a 4 x5, with nice large low light sensitive pixels to come in at say around 100 MP. Would a 4x5 sensor fit on a single wafer? Who knows about wafers?

Why worry about if the sensor would fit on a single wafer? Think outside the box!

New from Canon: the world's first digital 4 x 5 camera, featuring 42 18-megapixel APS-C sensors arranged in a 7 x 6 grid. At 756 megapixels, the highest resolution camera on the market!

Deleted due to being way off topic and so uninteresting that if you had read my previous and equally off-topic posts you wouldn't even notice this one being deleted because you would have fallen asleep before you got to this one.

From what I know from friends in wafer fab, the usual commercial wafer size is 12" (round disc)
So I'd think it would fit at most 2 such sensors per disc.
Each wafer costs $50K.
Usually wafer quality is not uniform over the area of the wafer, so it may even be only 1 such sensor on a wafer.
That then excludes handling and front/back end tests yields.
Add to that, the need for a reasonable profit, I guess its easily $150K-200K if any company wanted to sell such a thing (sensor cost only).

With digital, I think its easier to just gang up an array of DP2m, fire them off a 12s timer (since the DPm series can't take a remote), then stitch in PP with 100% success rate.

Just got off a show that was using an F55 and it was not well liked. The camera department was wishing it could switch to Arri. The guys from the camera house were on set more than a few times; never seen that with the Alexa.
My link was to the much better F65.

"Joe and I liked the way it looked. I think it suited this movie. Some of it is kind of clinical and Joe liked the Sony look on Tron. So he said, “Keep it going, let’s be on the cutting edge.” I shot camera tests. For Oblivion, the look of this movie was F65.

Describing a look from cameras and lenses can be almost like describing a wine. What is the particular look of a Sony F65?

It’s a little cleaner. It’s very resolute and it has a huge color gamut. All these new cameras need to be properly treated. There are certain advantages of Alexa on some shows and of F65 on others. I feel like I really have no allegiance toward any one camera. I just feel like a camera is used for the job."

Sony rumors is predicting that Canon is planning on announcing new sensor technology. Possibly organic. It makes sense. Canon has been falling behind Sony with traditional CMOS sensors. Maybe they have been falling behind because they have been putting all their resources into different technology.

Thats for the sensor.
Add in another 70% for the camera (no lens)


But we are digressing....
I'd like to see what Canon comes up with.
But year after year, their camera releases have been heralded by big loud trumpets and nothing much after that, so lets see....
