DIY 130Mp cameraWhat do you get if you cross a flatbed scanner with a Canon lens? Well, if you're anything like a particular camera enthusiast from Japan, you'll have turned it into a 130Mp camera.
 
Spyuge, an amateur photographer, said he used an 1200-dpi Epson flatbed scanner and an old Canon FD 50mm lens to make a camera that can't fit in your pocket, or shoot anything at speed, but it does have 130Mp.
 
The maker of the camera has posted several images taken with it on his flickr account and there's even a video of the camera in action.

I must have a look, I had pondered whether you could do that and was thinking an old Scanner I have that worked well on Win98 and an aged lap top could made a decent LF camera.

I always thought that Canon was a dodgy machine.
You need a very big pocket to take this camera around.
Imagine You outside Westminster trying to get Big Ben. Well a sniper would get you first.

Wonder what the POLICE will stay when you starting taking pictures with it.

Anyhow it's a cool idea.

This post rocks. You took our conversation from that podcast and made it incredibly clear. Im going to practice it so I can be much more eloquent.
