The Gigapxl Project  
Monday, November 15, 2004 | by Eamon Hickey
Though it has existed for several years, we just came across the Gigapxl Project, an effort by several photographers/scientists/engineers to test the limits of single-exposure detail resolution.

To achieve the extreme resolutions they are aiming for, Project members have designed and built their own custom lens, and they use a modified military aerial reconnaissance camera that shoots 9x18-inch film. They then scan the film and make digital prints from the resulting files.

Resolution geeks will find page after page of interesting optical and imaging science on the Project web site (though be warned: it's written somewhat like a physics textbook). Even if you're not interested in the technology behind it, the two sample images on the web site are amazing and definitely worth a look.
