We demonstrate a means of creating a digital image by using a two-axis tilt micromirror to scan a scene. For each different orientation we extract a single gray scale value from the mirror and combine them to form a single composite image. This allows one to choose the distribution of the samples, and so in principle a variable resolution image could be created. We demonstrate this ability to control resolution and projection by constructing a voltage table that compensates for the nonlinear response of the mirrors to the applied voltage.
