    Default Big Advertisment Poster- What Cam?

    We see Big Advertisment Poster everywhere, just to help you recap eg NIKON advertisment Poster stick on the exterior of the Bus. Is really huge and sharp even is so big.

    What camera do they use? And basically how they do it?(Ignore the printing part, but is ok, if u wish to share)

    It's huge, but renerally poor resolution. It only looks sharp because you don't see it up close.

    Most commercial shoots like that would use a Hasselblad or other high-resolution MF camera with a digital back.

    For your general knowledge:
    Bus and Train exterior poster pictures are taken using Hasselblad H4D-50 outputting an image size of 8176 x 6132 pixels. The image must be perceived to be sharp at a distance of 5meters.

    The image is converted manually to vector format before being manipulated on Adobe Illustrator CS3. It is printed on 3M non staining adhesive paper in 2m x 1m size.

    Hope that helps.
