The Gigavision Camera

We study a new image device called gigavision camera or the gigapixel digital film camera. The main differences between a conventional and a gigavision camera are that the pixels of the latter are binary and orders of magnitude smaller. A gigavision camera can be built using standard memory chip technology, where each memory bit is designed to be light sensitive. A conventional gray level image can be obtained from the binary gigavision image by low-pass filtering and sampling. The main advantage of the gigavision camera is that its response is non-linear and similar to a logarithmic function, which makes it suitable for acquiring high dynamic range scenes. The larger the number of binary pixels considered, the higher the dynamic range of the gigavision camera will be.
