Hi Edmund,

This is the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore.

There is a 150m long open air infinity pool on the 57th floor at the top... ;) These buildings are today’s cathedrals.

I picked this image because it illustrates the reason why I think 10,000 US$ (which buys you a GFX100) is apparently considered pocket change money for many people in Asia. ;)

Cheers,
Bernard

I knew the hotel just from looking at it :) Netflix did a show on hotels, and of course the Marina Bay Sands was their first episode - https://www.netflix.com/title/80212125

I did a write up as to why the GFX100 really is huge.  Having spent a week with the IQ4 150 since then, I can clearly state they both have their own spaces.

There are things you can do with a GFX100 that the XF can't - and there are things the XF can do that the GFX can't.

Thanks Joe, nice write up.

Of course, it's impossible to know how many sensors the aerial mapping/intelligence folks are buying... Some of that work is commercial, for everything from real estate development to agriculture and forestry to ecological science (even those numbers are hard to get, but there's no reason they should be impossible. A largeproportion, however, is classified spy secrets.

Most developed countries are photographed regularly from the air as evidenced by google map pictures. In addition to what you see on google, agriculture uses pictures taken in several bands outside of the visible. The corresponding maps are translated to instructions for GPS-guided agricultural machines, e.g. varying the quantities of nutrients delivered to the plants within a single field. All these need quantities of pictures.

The cameras in the planes are arranged in pods of a few cameras, typically between 4 and 10. MF cameras are often used because the increased resolution, which directly translates into less flight time.

None of this is classified spy secrets. Covert operations do not use planes, which would need authorisation to enter airspace, but satellites. Satellites typically (but not always) use linear sensors, because the satellite regular movement makes it an ideal scanner head.
