Default DIY EPIC - 130MP Scanning camera.

Would be nice if there was more info on how to build this,

Great for Panoramics,and slit scan experiments if it was made portable.

That's cool. Modified flatbed scanner, I take it?

Wonder if a slide scanner might be a better option, or if I could rig one inside a 6x7 camera, flatbed scanner would need a much larger setup.

Your quite right, probably no use what so ever, easier to just use an EPIC GIGAPAN for Gigapixel images. This scanning camera would take ages to create a still image, and any moving objects would create strange effects like a slit scan camera.

I can imagine this being useful for super high resolution stop-motion animation. Then again - The resolution does look like mega-schmega-overkill to me.

Moving objects or people can produce great results.





Both images produced by Derek Burnett, my photography tutor way back in the 80's.

If Red could implement a scanning mode without too much trouble then I would love to have the feature.
