World's Fastest Camera Gigapiksel The camera that we usually encounter in the market on average has the ability to capture images up to 40 Megapixels. Well, apparently following a successful prototype camera baffle some audiences.
Because the ability is designed to capture megapixel images to which hundreds of billions of pixels (1 megapixel = 1 million pixels). Claimed, the resulting image would snap through at all 1,000 times more detail than most of the tools that exist today.
Indeed, this tool is not the first gigapiksel dibesut camera. However, it is the smallest and fastest devices in the world, such as reported detikINET of AFP on Thursday (6/21/2012).
"Our cameras record an image gigapiksel in less than 10 seconds," said David Brady, a member of the project told AFP.
Many benefits can be reaped from these tools. Helps to increase security at airports, surveillance in the military sector to cover sporting events are some of the benefits
Yes, with the ability to 'monster', he was able to capture the details missed by the human eye. Later this detail can be seen through the zoom without sacrificing clarity. Optical system itself consists of a lens of 6 cm and 98 pieces of micro-camera which each carry 14 MP sensor.
So what's in the camera when used to cover the sporting event? Brady said that the technology could also be used to stream on the internet and allow viewers to zoom in and watch the game from various perspectives, and resolution options.
Is the technicians from the United States was behind the camera, dubbed the AWARE-2's. Given its dimensions, Brady added that the optical system weighs about 10 kg, but with the added casing, weighing a total of 45 kg.
This tool is placed in a box measuring 75 cm X 50 cm X 50 cm. For the cost of making such cameras, the cost incurred to achieve USD 100,000 - USD 250,000.
