Warning: This could be called vaporware and might never come to production, but it is nice to dream!
We are considering a high-resolution digital back, which will be just what everyone has been asking for, and more! If you are interested, you may join the mailing list, contact us or just check back in a few years on the progress.
The current design goal is 96x120 mm to mate with 4x5 cameras, though it could be a bit smaller. Currently, people are most interested in color and 4x5, however mono can always be an option.
Issues: Adobe Lightroom has a 512 MP image size limit. DNG and TIFF have a 4 GB limit. Capture One can be used with large files.
Mountable on just about any existing 4x5 camera, such as a Graflock Back, also on 8x10 cameras. We will custom-mount it to most popular cameras if needed. If you are interested please send us a message.

LSX45-M Monochrome 4x5 inch digital back
C - color
M - monochrome
We are considering a high-resolution, single-shot digital back, which will be just what everyone has been asking for, and more! If you are interested, you may join the mailing list, contact us or just check back in a few years on the progress. When we get close to possible production, if that day ever comes, we will announce it. All of the digital backs will be custom-ordered and we will only start if there is enough demand.
Mounting: Custom mounting for 8x10 cameras.
If you are interested, please send us a message.
Question: What is single shot?
Answer: It is taking the whole image at once, unlike scanning backs that take part of the image at a time.
We'll make the sensor from a 12 inch wafer. A square is the rectangle with the most area in a circle. Would you like an 8x8 inch sensor or one that keeps the 8x10 ratio? An 8x10 ratio might be 7.3 x 9.1 inches. The 8x8 would be a bit bigger than 8x8 and both sizes would be similar in pixels and more then 2GP.
One concern about 8x10 is the need to rotate, and in the field you might get some dust in.
