    How are they "enlarging" it? Some gigantic-ass process camera? I don't even know of a scanner that can work with media that large....

    Where's Asher Kelman? I thought he was talking about doing something like this, but shooting onto Ilfochrome directly.

    Meh... Minicams like 11x14 and 12x20 are so much more practical.

    I don't get this:
    What we're trying to do is capture this little essence of this country before it totally gets homogenized. Before everyone gets homogenized.
    I think he just wanted to explore some extreme technology and needed some conceptual rationale to get the funding. Who's getting homogenized?

    I seem to remember from photo history class that someone built a 12 foot camera in Sydney Harbor in the 1870's. (Am I right-?) They built a 100 foot one here in CA a couple of years ago. Old news....

    Fun truck, tho'

    Not even close. Did you see the one where they turned the whole inside of a blimp hanger into a pinhole camera, and applied Liquid Light, then dev and fix, using painting gear? They got the size record, even if the image itself looked pretty crappy.

    Maybe they're using a Gigapan to rephotograph - then on to inkjet section by section.

    The woman newscaster, referring to the 80-odd year old fighter pilot he photographed, said "just think: he saw the invention of the camera!"

    *Sigh* Ok, the camera was invented, what, 1930-ish?
