Samsung has got us excited for their new 200MP sensor with a printing stunt like no other! The image sensor engineers at Samsung Electronics accepted a challenge of printing a picture that was taken with Samsung’s 200MP mobile image sensor on an enormous 616 square meter-sized canvas. Just to be clear, we’re talking 28-meter-wide, 22-meter-high photograph, which is about one and a half times the size of a basketball court, and it came out great. 

“Our desire to truly test the limits of the high-performance 200MP image sensor and its image quality is what brought this challenge about,” said Changwan Kim, project manager from the Global Marcom Team of Device Solutions Division at Samsung Electronics.
