1,474 Megapixel Photo

All I can say is WOW! Never before have I ever seen something quite amazing like this. I was so captivated by the amount of detail you can see with the maximum zoom and how much area the picture encompasses. Although, its also cool to see the bits of mistakes made by making this picture (Lady with 4 eyes, etc)

That is really cool! I have seen a high MegaPixel picture of a city landscape before too - it was too cool!

13 gigapixels... I don't even know what that is.

Anyone know how these photos are taken? (what kind of camera, etc)

I think the first one was Canon G10 - I'm pretty sure it was said on the website, and I think its just a huge number of photos stitched together, you could do it as well with lots and lots of practice and precision

The photographer used a device called a "Gigapan Epic" to accomplish this shot. It is a motorized robotic mount in which you clamp the camera. The retail price is under $400, believe it or not. The device is mostly for point & shoot cameras, though they list a few DSLR's that can fit into it. You set up some parameters and let it do the rest. Move, click, move, click, etc.



He took 220 shots to create the larger image.



He said (in his blog) that the snapping of the shots took 20 minutes, and the stitching together took 6 hours.

I am confused by how these pictures lined up so seemlessly considering that it took 20 minutes to capture the whole thing. He his now selling enlargements (up to 8' wide) on his site, and states that he's fixed a few errors such as the 4-eyed woman.



He also clarifies on his site that Justice Clarence Thomas is not sleeping, even though it looks that way.  Smile

What is the definition of 'big' for an actual real photo?? (not a composite mosaic) I have a JPEG of an aerial view of downtown Hamburg that is over 59Mb. Windows is telling me that it is 8371 by 12872. Its pretty big!!

Anyone got anything even bigger??
