Collaboration Project of Tokyo Camera Club and Impremia NS40
Tokyo, Japan - August 22, 2022 -
Collaboration Project of Tokyo Camera Club and Impremia NS40:
Exhibit of 400-megapixel works achieved by high-resolution printing of 100-megapixel photographs
Komori Corporation (Sumida-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Satoshi Mochida) is pleased to announce that, as a collaboration project with the Tokyo Camera Club, Komori will print two photographers’ works on the Impremia NS40 40-inch Sheetfed Nanographic Printing® System and exhibit them in the Tokyo Camera Club 2022 Photo Exhibition to be held this September.
In this project, Komori will exhibit ultra-large works printed on our latest digital machine, the Impremia NS40. The works are colorful landscapes taken with a 100-megapixel digital camera by Tokyo Camera Club photographers Misaki Nagao and Yoshikazu Sobukawa.
The Impremia NS40 is capable of printing 100-megapixel photographs on B1 sheets while maintaining a high resolution of 300 PPI. In addition to output on B1 sheets, we will show for the first time dynamic work in a size equivalent to two B0 sheets by combining four B1 sheets. We invite you to closely experience the beauty of these powerful, intricately detailed reproductions that are rarely seen in everyday life.

Born in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, in 1995.
Nagao liked traveling and started taking landscape photographs with the purchase of a single-lens reflex camera to take and preserve as many worthy photographs as possible. Gradually, he began to pursue sunrises and rare landscapes and was selected for the Sony Next Photographer Award at the All-Japan Association of Photographic Societies’ 35th “Nature of Japan” photo contest as well as the Tokyo Camera Club’s “10 Viral Photographs of 2018.”
He mainly prefers to shoot landscapes in forests, at the waterside, and in the mountains, exploring the world he loves every day.
Born in 1958 and lives in Yokohama, Japan.
In 2002, Sobukawa founded Zenwan, a video and event production company.
