a few words about slitscan:

This is the fourth slitscan camera I’ve created.  The first two were made from scanners & SANE software, they required a laptop to operate.   The third used an industrial assembly line scanner , it required a desktop to operate.  These were used to create the other slitscan images on this site. http://ralph.ca/?page_id=425

 This  4th version was created using an Ardunio DUE, a few small modules and a linear CCD sensor.   The 4th version is also completely portable & saves data on an SDcard.   This last version is what captured the Street Slitscan images.      The original images are 2048*30000 or 60megapixel images with 12 bit depth.

Some code & pictures of the camera can be seen at http://ralph.ca/other/slitscan_writeup/
