Take a cheap consumer scanner at 2400 ppi and scan an A4 document = 558 MP camera.
Just mount a lens to your flatbed scanner. It works on the same principle. Which means... handheld shots may not be that feasible... ;p

The idea isn't new - scanning backs have been used for ages. The novelty of this camera may lie in its compact size.

The 1s acquisition time is not the exposure time ("faster shutter"). It's the time the scanhead takes to travel across the picture projected by the lens.

The scanning back can be mounted on a roundshot right?

Care to elaborate more and share some insight history?

A reminder that the highest resolution right now is still the GigaPxl camera.

The scanning technology is not new, and taking an image requires about 30 seconds.
was looking at the 16 gigapix picture of the last supper of some italian website... swee!! :bigeyes:
