You know what's going to be really hip? When much larger sensors become possible. Right now it's tough to get reasonable yields on sensors much larger than 135. There are only a couple of sources for sensors that cover the full 645 aperture. As far as I know there are no photographic sensors larger than that yet. Imagine how cool a digital 6x9 folder would be, though. When sensors are available and the electronics are small and light enough to make something like that possible it will really be an interesting time to be alive and taking photos.
