The LS911 is an "8x10" large format digital camera. Adapted to use a Sinar front, though other fronts can be adapted.
The 4x5 or 5x4 digital single shot digital back with video and live view.
A high quality liquid crystal shutter will allow accurate and precise shutter speeds as fast as 1/500 s. Ideal for video, it can also allow work well for still images. In development.
- Very high contrast
- Speeds as short as 1/500 s
- Precise and shutter exposure control
- 30% light transmittance
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.
Surveys to help gauge interest
Here are previous survey results:
67% 4x5 (5 by 5 inch)
7% Something smaller than 4x5
26% 8x10 (9 by 11 inch)
65% Color (Bayer CFA)
45% Something other than Sinar
