SFMS Tour of GigaMacro, July 15

On Saturday, July 15th, SFMS will be having a field trip to the GigaMacro lab in Napa, CA. GigaMacro is an innovative imaging system that uses a combination of digital macrophotography, robotics, and computational photography to combine a series of small, close-up photos into a gigapixel-resolution image. This will yield a single, highly detailed image, but can also be usable to carry out a detailed post-caputure examination of the image.

GigaMacro will be showing SFMS a tour of its location and a demo of the GigaMacro system.

GigaMacro's website can be viewed here.


Time: Saturday, July 15th, noon.
