60 Megapixel Camera – Estragon Alpa 12 TC

I remember back in the day, 5 or 6 years ago, I bought a 3 megapixel camera and everyone thought that it was “da bomb!!”.  Now we have cameras in the 10 to 20 MP range, however, Estragon from Switzerland has created a 60 Megapixel camera that’ll put every one of those cameras to shame.  The camera is called ALPA 12 TC and it uses a 6×9 roll film (whatever a roll film is?) and costs a whopping $40,000.

The Estragon Alpa 12 TC is a thing of beauty…

The word on the street is that when you take a picture of a person with this camera, the image quality is so good that you can actually see that person’s soul in the picture.

Likely? Probably not, but I bet the photos are absolutely stunning all the same. I would love to give this a try, but for the time being I’ll marvel at the camera’s design. It reminds me of something straight out of Blade Runner.

  1. Sorry, your headline is wrong. Only the wooden hand grip was designed together with Estragon. Nothing more. The ALPA 12 TC exists since 2005 and neither the viewfinder nor the lens and accessories was ever touched by Estragon! There is nothing like an “Estragon ALPA”
