I remember reading about the "Humongaroid" 20x24 camera. The Polaroid program ran as sort of a grant process; you'd apply to use it and if you and your proposed project were approved, they'd send the camera and a team of technicians to help you operate it.

Polaroid's no longer making consumer Polaroid film; I'd bet you better than even money they're not making the big stuff either.

Visit http://www.polaroid.com/ and among the rotating images at the top of the page, you'll see the monster camera. Polaroid's donated it to MIT.

And there you can also learn that I was wrong. They *had* stopped making film, but they're back in the business now. My bet's still on though.
