This is our periodic newsletter of news, tips, and advice about making images with incredible detail, all in focus, all the time.
Image of the month.
A slightly different image this month. This is a view of our very first prototype machine, in 2009. Boy how we've grown and matured! Take a look at todays machine, the Magnify2. Compare and contrast! Back to bugs and high resolution images next month!
The BIG news is that our revamped web site (with a few bugs and testing issues) went live on the first day of spring!
We'd love to know your thoughts and feedback. As a motivator to help us to improve it, there is a tshirt or Starbucks coffee for each bug or typo (for the first to tell us) you can find.
We like the look and feel and the simplified approach, and hope you do too! If you like it too please tell your friends; if not please tell me!
Naomi Cooper is back with us, looking after sales. You can find out about her on the spiffy new web site. And you can email her or call her on +1 (707) 319 9421.
If you are looking for a way to get a Magnify2 without capital outlay, talk to Naomi. We now have rental and lease to buy options. If you have an earlier GIGAmacro system, we also have a trade-up option that allows you to keep your camera and optics, and upgrade the robotic elements to the Magnify2, for about a 30% discount. Call or email us for details.
March's issue of Make: magazine has Gene's article 'The Big Picture' (with me in support) on how to make high resolution images with a point and shoot camera. We used an Arduino board (the brains of our robotic scanner) as the subject and you can see some of the images and additional resources here.
Out & About.
On April 9th, GIGAmacro will be part of the Robot Block Party in Palo Alto, CA. If you are in the area, come and join us. We'd love to see you there.
If you were at the Cal Academy Robot Night Life and have pictures, we'd love to see them. Tweet them (we are @giga_macro) or share via Facebook?
