In the vast majority of the cameras we own, or at least use on a daily basis, we have an image sensor. It’s either a CCD or a CMOS. A single, static non-moving chip (IBIS notwithstanding) that captures your whole scene at once (or as close to it as you can get if you have a rolling shutter CMOS sensor). But there is another technique for capturing images, and that’s by scanning.
Scanning cameras are not a new idea. In fact, they’ve been pretty much the only way you can shoot with large format cameras digitally. But this DIY solution from Yunus Zenichowski turns the idea into at truly portable camera which uses a projector lens and creates beautifully detailed photos. And best of all, it cost him less than $150.
