At 8 x 10 inches, the Maxback is the biggest camera sensor in the world. It was commissioned by professional photographer Mitchell Feinberg and it costed as much as "a good size house." Why spend so much money? He explains:
If you are wondering how big this thing really is, compare it to the largest digital camera back in the market today, which is only 1.77 x 2.36 inches. The difference is absolutely ridiculous. Feinberg says that now he has the quality of film with the immediacy of digital film—at these sizes, the immediacy of digital film is 30 seconds to take a photo!
