Gigapixel Camera Closer To Bladerunner

Bladerunner Type Camera

(Redsharknews.com) Bladerunner style photographs become a step closer to reality with a new camera that can take Gigapixel photos allowing you to zoom in on any part of the image and see it in amazing clarity. You can see all kinds of detail that isn?t apparent when you look at the wider picture

Stitching photos together to create huge photographs has been done quite a bit but usually each photo is taken at a different point in time. This leads to the kind of effect that can be seen on Google Maps where changes can happen on the boundaries between photos. The Gigapixel camera is basically an array of cameras all operating together in sync so that all parts of the picture are taken at exactly the same time thus removing the issue altogether.

The camera array idea also solves another problem. There are limits to what can be resolved through a single conventional optical path due to the physics of lenses etc. The gigapixel aware 2-camera system overcomes this problem by using an array of optical paths; basically a great many digital cameras all operating in sync. This mitigates the problem as each camera can operate near its optical limits but the data from all of them can be combined to create a single “superimage” with far more data than any single optical path could ever hope to resolve.
