Draw the Curtains: Gigapixel Cameras Create Highly Revealing Snapshots [Slide Show]

“Researchers are developing cameras that can take digital snapshots made up of more than a billion pixels”

If they are reading this the site referenced has a picture labeled “Seattle OR” which of course should be Seattle, WA. I worked with a Rollei close-range photogrammetry system, a medium-format camera, though 35mm was also available, in development as Intel 80387 (i387) math chip made the process available from a number of photos registered on a large tablet which allowed 3D measurements from software to be obtained from a sequence of photos, (or photo) with the factory documented camera and lens for aberration or distortion. I think this method might aid the science of close-range photogrammetry, where very accurate measurements are needed. Was that pipe on the oil platform, to be replaced, as it was on the “blueprint”, or how much needs to be adjusted, or other uses, accidents, preservation, “as-builts” etc.

Scientific American article comment.
