    There are more efficient and less egocentric ways to honor vanishing cultures. There have been other impressive large cameras, such as http://robroy.dyndns.info/lawrence/mammoth.html.

    I saw some information about this about six months ago. I think he was just starting to take some test negatives. This is very impressive for the times we live in. I would love to see the actual images!

    @jim jones: i was wondering indeed about their claim. Pretty sure the largest camera ever build was a pinhole camera the size of a hangar. Do any of you know if this camera was ever built? Those negs are made with a prototype he has, i haven't seen the actual thing anywhere yet. Would be pretty cool to see.

    @dwerg85: It was called the " Legacy Project" used an F-18 jet fighter hangar at
    El Toro Marine base in Orange county California with a pinhole in one wall to to take the photograph.

    There is much information on the internet about this project, for example: http://www.alternativephotography.co...ole-photograph.

    I think my crappy formating confused stuff a bit. I know that the hangar cam was built. It's the main reason i'm not impressed by "big camera" claims.
    I was actually asking if the manarchy project was ever actually made in full.
