Wired News is running an article by Leander Kahney on the Gigapxl camera by Graham Flint and Catherine Aves. They spoke at COBA in July of last year, wowing the crowd with their higher-than-high resolution images.
There’s even a quote from me in the article:
“Graham’s unique background has made it possible to create something that is truly impressive,” said Adam Tow, a digital media expert at Stanford University. “The prints are really quite breathtaking. They make the highest-end digital cameras look like toys… You could see the grooves in a golf ball in a landscape shot of Torrey Pines Golf Course.”
Yes, it’s that impressive. Be sure to check out the images in the article’s photo gallery.
I’m glad to see Graham and Catherine getting some press. There have been a number of articles about other gigapixel cameras in recent months. Though I haven’t seen those images, I suspect that the Gigapxl images are, if not equal to, far superior to anything out there that’s not classified!
