World's Biggest Camera, Not So Portable

worlds_biggest_pic.jpgOn Monday the world's biggest camera took the world's biggest picture - a not very wallet-friendly 31' by 111'. The camera body was an aircraft hangar, the film was cloth soaked in light sensitive chemicals and the exposure was a tedious ten days. Of course, there are limited options with a camera this big, and it can only snap whatever happens to be in front of it - a disused Marine Corps Air Station.

The image will be on display at the Art Center College of Design in Pasedina, California, from September the 6th to 29th. [Sci Fi Tech]
