It’s not something that you would take on your next Photo safari but if you are into gadgets and alike you will love this one. A japanese camera buff build himself a 130 megapixel camera from an older 1200 dpi Epson flatbed scanner and a manual Canon lens. The images are huge:  13,068 x 10,173 pixels. (The standard resolution of an average sized computer monitor is about 1024 x 768 pixels.)

I think we may just have to contact this guy because he definitly needs SilverFast for his camera 😉
