The ScanPro® 3000 26 megapixel camera has the highest camera resolution of any microfilm scanner on the market
For low end cameras, camera resolution is dependent on the image sensor resolution only. However, top of the line camera manufacturers such as Olympus, Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Hasselblad and others use pixel-shifting technology and employ high precision optics to create cameras with resolutions that far exceed the specification of the simple image sensor.
Camera manufacturers today develop cameras with resolutions higher than that of the simple sensor
Although this type of camera design is new in the micrographics industry, highly respected, well known imaging corporations have been doing this for years. We will look at a couple high-end cameras and the manufacturers that describe their design and provide documentation.
The Olympus DP73 camera is an example of a high-end camera that incorporates pixel-shifting technology and precision optical hardware to achieve a high-end, high resolution camera. In this example, Olympus starts with a 2.01 megapixel sensor and using pixel-shifting technology captures 17.28 megapixels of unique image information to provide a superior performance 17.3 megapixel camera (for more information on this Olympus camera see the link below).
The Carl Zeiss AxioCam camera is another example of a high-end camera that incorporates pixel-shifting technology and precision optical hardware to achieve a high performance camera used in research and digital documentation. In this example, Carl Zeiss starts with a 1.4 megapixel sensor and using pixel-shifting technology captures 12.99 megapixels of unique image information to provide a superior performance 13 megapixel camera (for more information on this Carl Zeiss camera see the link below).
The ScanPro 3000 uses this same technology
starting with a 6.6MP image sensor and then adding precision optical
hardware, captures 26.4 megapixels of optical data. Each pixel is an
optical capture of unique image information and the total optical image
is a high resolution 26.4 Megapixels. This true 26 Megapixel camera is
the highest resolution microfilm scanner camera available.
