I was in Austin, Texas recently (part of being an expert witness in software patent cases is becoming familiar with Federal courthouses in Texas) and visited the Phil Crawshay Gallery where I was exposed to some interesting landscape work. Crawshay uses a Gigapan robotic camera head, a Canon Rebel, and then prints out the resulting 1 GB (stitched) image files with a Canon ink jet printer. He mounts the prints behind acrylic and they look fantastic, with a three-dimensional depth. Can this be done commercially? Crawshay suggested Bumblejax as one lab that can do it. (He also suggested bayphoto.com for making huge prints.)
Once on the acrylic, Crawshay sometimes puts the prints in a traditional frame, but I thought that they looked much better on the wall without a frame.
Have readers played around with this new (to me) photo display technology?
