Re: Film is not dead! 35 Foot Camera uses film the size of a person

too early in the morning for me to crunch this but as impressed with the camera as I will be, I'm going to be even more impressed by the lens this guy is going to need!
some thoughts..let's see - he's proposing 1/1000 of a second to avoid movement - and the rig is portable so I'm assuming he plans on using it in semi-lit /outdoor settings (hopefully without incinerating the subject) .. the 3+ stops he'll gain over daylight is going to require a fair thump of light
I'd guess if his proposed shutter speed is 1/1000 of a second I'm also going to be highly impressed by the shutter!
It's suggested in the article and accompanying images that he'll effectively be producing something like 9:1 (or greater) macro shots of faces - that's going to cause a serious reduction in light and require on heck of a fast lens! (and subsequent reduction in DoF)
to be honest I'd think the risk of fouling a shot being so expensive he'd be better going the other way and allowing for much longer exposures, that way a minor facial flicker or a blink might be a fraction of the full duration of the exposure and would be a mere ghost in the image
