    This is amazing. I saw this article in the news last night about a 4 billion (yes-billion) pixel image produced for an Earth mapping group. Here is a link to the article. Imagine where cameras will be in 10 or 20 years. Mount Everest in stunning four billion pixel image detail - Telegraph

    Yeah, my young son and I looked at that last night, then switched over to some other gigapan images...we had a lot of fun looking at them together. One interesting gigapan we saw was made in Dubai. Another one that we looked at was made in Shanghai,China, and was made up of 12,000 canon 7D images, shot with a 400mm f/5.6 Canon EF lens and 2x Canon tele-converter, spanning a time frame of from 8:30 AM to around 4:30 PM on a single day with good,calm weather and clear skies. It was fascinating!!! The photographer said it took him around three months to upload the images!

    What is really cool, is when you zoom in to full magnification and see the scale... Those little yellow crumbs at the bottom - are tents. Further up the slopes are lines of people making the ascents. And when you see their size, you begin to see just how massive the scale is. Ugh. I got tired just following the lines up the slope.

    That was fun to view, and further solidifies my conviction that I am never going to climb that mountain. :lol:

    Dear god. This is amazing... I wonder if they lug it around in an oversized flashdrive.
    This picture is an experience.

    I love those huge gigapixel photos, especially of cities. It's kind of fun to try to spot something interesting going on inside a building or on the streets :D
