Ever Wonder What 45 Gigapixels Looks Like?

The picture to the right is NOT it. It's merely a picture of Dubai.

Some dude was experimenting with some software and a camera. 4,250 individual shots taken with a Canon 7D and the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L zoom at 400mm (of the Dubai skyline in panorama). Total shooting time about 3 hours 30 minutes, in 37C heat (that's the temperature in the shade - the camera and lens were almost too hot to touch at the end of this).

The results are astounding. You can seriously zoom for days! Crazy!!


There is also a YouTube video of the making of this project.

They should use that camera to get a picture of the Salisbury Grinch.
