A supercamera which can capture images with “unprecedented details”, up 50 gigapixels (50,000 megapixels) resolutions was recently unveiled. 98 identical microcameras with 14 megapixels censor for each are used to make this supercamera. A team led by engineer David Brady and Michael J. Fitzpatrick, professor of Electric Engineering at Duke's Pratt School of Engineering, and scientists from the University of Arizona, and the University of California developed the supercamera.
The size of the supercamera is quite large, measuring 75cmx75cmx50cm. The supercamera currently captures black & white images only. You can expect to see color supercameras in near future.
