That thing on that guy’s shoulder? That’s a massive 95 x 95mm sensor made by Spectral Instruments.
This sensor is 5x bigger than a Hasselblad’s and shoots 112 megapixel photos! Because the sensor is so large, it can shoot hour-long exposures without noise and can capture stars in broad daylight.
This sensor isn’t made for the everyday photographer, but they might do it if they get enough feedback. So let ‘em know if you want it!
