    The World's Biggest Photograph

    If you were concerned about 20 meg images and photo stroage - try storing THIS one !!

    It weighs in at 111 Gigapixels, was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens.
    It consists of 1.665 full format pictures with 21.4 mega pixel, which was
    recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. The converting of 102 GB raw
    Data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took
    94 hours. The picture is supposed to be the largest in the world.

    G'day Bob

    nice one to contemplate on our "little toy computers..."
    Many years ago Kodak produced an image for display in [I think] Pennsylvania railway station - it was 40 feet wide x 10 feet high and printed from a neg on a 220-roll film - printed onto a single piece of photo paper too.

    Regards, Phil
    Of all the stuff in a busy photographers kitbag, the ability to see photographically is the most important

    Not a fan of it honestly. I would respect the achievement when it is done with a single photo, not a million composites joined together. I still prefer the Kodak achievement mentioned above.

    James miss quoted the original size of this one - the maker says the RAW stitched file was 1.24TB - cropped down to 1.09TB - then 272 Gigapixels and 112 Gigapisels finished. 12000 images shot with a 7D, 400mm and 2x converter. Shot with the Gigapan Pro over approx 9-10 hours. Massive session!
    Canon 5D Mk II - gripped, Samyang 14mm f2.8, Canon 16-35mm f2.8L, 50mm f1.2L, 100mm Macro f2.8L, 70-200mm IS II f2.8L, Gitzo CF tripod and Gitzo CF monopod, Acratech GP Ballhead, Manfrotto Video Fluid Head, Intervalometer, and lots of other stuff!

    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    You're not wrong! However, camera makers know that most people who use cameras are not photographers, and if there's one basic rule of mankind it's "size matters".
