Gigapixel digital cameras
You think you’re the man with your new 8- or 16-megapixel digital camera?
Bah, I say – you got nothin’! These folks have a 4-gigapixel digital camera with 4 billion pixels.
These images are huge – 24GB each as a raw file – but luckily have been rendered down to a little smaller files for ease of use. The site also discusses the issues with getting these massive images printed in a way that maintains the detail. Overall, a great use of technology.
The images are awesome – check them out in the gallery.
