Photography with a difference

A bizarre yet interesting digital camera advancement to report on today, with a young man revealing he's been taking apart cheap flatbed scanners and turning them into homemade digital cameras. So what, some of you might be saying.

Well the interesting thing about this experiment is that the cameras are "well over" 100 megapixels in resolution. Yes, that's right, OVER ONE-HUNDRED MEGAPIXELS. So while the likes of Sony and Olympus wage war over 10 and 11 megapixel numbers, Michael Golembewski has been experiementing with devices ten times the quality of today's professional cameras for the past three years.

Golembewski claims the home made cameras produce results "that are both similar to and significantly different from traditional digital and conventional cameras." It might be important to note that the first camera he produced was made from electrical tape, a cardboard box and the cheapest flatbed scanner available. Now that's commitment!

Basically, still objects photograph in a normal manner, but moving objects twist and distort into weird and wonderful shapes and sizes - much like the effect you get if you've ever moved a photocopied page in the middle of its scan.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
