FAQ - Question and Answer

Question:  Can you lower the price on your cameras?
Answer: The big issue with the price of cameras is the large piece of silicon for the sensor. Defects are more serious when you have a single large sensor as you might loose a whole wafer. With small sensors you just loose one sensor per a larger quantity.

We expect to have discounted trade ins and refurbished units in the future. The sensor is said to have a long life and reliability.

Question:  Do I need a light meter with your cameras?
Answer: You don't need a light meter. There is a live view histogram and images can be taken to review the exposure.

Question:  Will LargeSense make a medium format camera? Sizes such as 6x7 (67), 6x9 (69).
Answer: Currently there are no plans to make any sensors smaller than 4x5 inch. Perhaps in some years we may look at something smaller. Eventually a 617 size might be considered.
