Ladies and gentlemen, step right up for your chance to see the Eye of America. This GIGANTIC film camera measures 35 feet long and captures images on negatives that are six by four and a half FEET, which produce images that are one thousand times greater than the average negative. Dennis Manarchy, the owner of the camera, uses the camera to make these giant images and also uses the camera to teach people about how a camera works.
