DIY 130-megapixel camera built with a scanner Answered

Add an old flatbed scanner to a 50 mm lens and with some skill you can make a 130 megapixel camera of your very own. I'm still happy with the cameras I have, but this looks like a great project to take on.

Does anyone know if there are instructions out there for this? For mercy, someone tell me how to make this. I have an old scanner that is just aching to become a bad ass camera/

130 megapixels sounds impressive now, but by next fall it'll be standard in every cell phone.

" I do think that the excellence of this camera can only sow the tongue." Yes, that clears everything up.

i often thought about getting an old 2 megapixel camera and trying to insert it into the body of an old film SLR and seeing if I could get some action out of it using a other lenses such as fish-eye or wide angle.

That is pretty nice. I wonder if it has to be a 50mm. I'd like to try to retrofit an antique film camera to digital. Gotta go read the link...
