Another big camera

A 160-megapixel camera from Seitz.
If you think pocket cameras are just toys, this might be for you.

I really wonder why their bothered packaging it like a handheld??

I mean, the full frame exposure time is still in the order of 1 second, and the contraption appears to be quite heavy. I'd be curious to see a full frame taken by hand with this, it must have some pretty interesting psychedelic effects in the resulting image!

I've actually seen some interesting pictures from this camera which could only have been taken hand-held, like from inside a go-cart race and the like.

The long "shutter speed" is only if you consider the whole frame. Since it is a scanner camera, the effective shutter speed at any point is pretty short.

Well understood, but still the picture must be stretched or otherwise distorted if the camera is moving, no?

Sure, to greater or lesser degree.
