Exclamation Gigapxl Project

Defining the upper limits of large-format photography, digital scanning and image processing, custom-built Gigapxl™ cameras capture images with unprecedented resolution.
It would take a video wall of 10,000 television screens or 600 prints from a professional digital SLR camera to capture as much information as that contained in a single Gigapxl™ exposure.
The Project's near-term goal is to compile a coast-to-coast Portrait of America; photographing her cities, parks and monuments in exquisite detail.
A longer term goal is to create for future generations a world-wide archive of vanishing cultural and archaeological sites

This image of the San Diego skyline, taken from Coronado Island, has become the most printed image of our collection. Featured as the background on the Gigapxl Project business card (at 2" x 3.5"), it has also served as illustration of our project to museums and corporations, printed at 44" x 88".


Cropped to 38% of the original height and width, we are zeroing in on the right-hand building of the Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.


After a third 38% crop.


Cropping to 38% once again, the windows in the hotel are beginning to reveal their interiors.


One last crop to slightly more than 2% of the width and height and this room is revealed. How safe will you feel now when you decide to leave the hotel curtains open when you're on the 15th floor?


In an intermediate zoom, we see the construction activity on the building in the right-hand edge of the image (away from the safety of good central-image resolution).


A final zoom on this area, again near 2% of the width and height of the original, and there's no doubt as to the brand of material used by this construction crew.
