Engineers Build Gigapixel Camera

Electrical engineers from Duke University and the University of Arizona have built an imaging apparatus consisting of 98 synchronised microcameras and a large, ball-shaped central lens. “Each one of the microcameras captures information from a specific area of the field of view,” said Professor David Brady of Duke University. “A computer processor essentially stitches all this information into a single highly detailed image.” Stitched images from the prototype offer a resolution of one gigapixel, but in the long run, the researchers aim to produce a 50-gigapixel camera. Another direction for future development is miniaturisation: “within five years, as the electronic components of the cameras become miniaturised… gigapixel cameras should be available to the general public,” the scientists say.

  1. When digital cameras appear, my brother that is a retired photographer, says: "This digital image will take to many years until get close to film quality". Today when I remember him of that he only laugh and surrender to digital. And it has no more than 6 years...

  2. film is still much better looking

  3. I agree, but it depends on the hands the film are. To point and shot, I think that digital don't lose to film. But to a pro that knows how to set a film camera, and shot criteriously, film has it's value. (yet).

  4. A point and shot for me is enough. I use photography just for fun. A day, who knows, a have a DSLR?

  5. People still really talk about film versus digital? If you think that film still looks better, then you are really saying that you don't like the default photos coming out of your camera. It just take a little editing.

    At this point film is for art projects, not real work.

  6. That's almost what I'm saying. Art projects, special publicity, some giant photos associate to art mainly, and so on. To comon humans, digital came to stay.
