Better Light Launches Super 10K-HS 416-Megapixel Back for Large Format Digital Photography

Better Light Super 10K-HS 416-Megapixel Back

The Super 10K-HS digital scanning back by Better Light captures up to 416 megapixels of image data in every scan, generating 794MB of 48-bit true RGB file at native resolution.

At $23,000 this thing is not for you and me but for advertising, commercial, reproduction and archival entities who demand large hi-res files that can render extraordinary detail and superb control of color and tones, such as museums who want to preserve priceless artwork into digital form, or companies who want to create high resolution billboards.

On a 4 x 5 large format camera, the Super 10K-HS produces a capture area of 72 x 96mm (120mm diagonal) with each pixel receiving pure red, green and blue data – no interpolation of color data, no digital artifacts and no moiré pattern issues to deal with in post-production.
