"416 megapixels ought to be enough for anybody…"
I wonder if that statement will sound laughably outdated someday. Until then, the new 416MP scanning back from Better Light is mighty impressive. According to CNET, each 2-minute exposure generates a 794MB file that can provide 300 pixel-per-inch resolution for a poster measuring 34" x 45"–all for a cool 23 grand. Put that in your Flickr account and smoke it. [See also 160 megapixels or bust.]
