That's one big photo (http://www.dresden-26-gigapixels.com/dresden26GP.en.html).


Technical characteristics

The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens. It consists of 1.665 full format pictures with 21.4 megapixel, 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. With a resolution of 297.500 x 87.500 pixel (26 gigapixel) the picture is the largest in the world. (stand December 2009)

Yes, that was impressive... wonder how much that camera cost.

I did not care about Waldo, but I kept looking for the streaker.

Challenge: How about a game. Basically, we all find something in the photograph and challenge the next person to find it. But, the person who challenged must know where it is. The first person to guess correctly does it again. I'll go first. I dare ya'll to find a McDonalds McCafe advertisement.

Edit:...I guess I'm the only one playing.

It's just a canon 5D mark II. Major stitching going on there!

i can't see any people going about their normal public business. kinda makes it non-interesting for me. i can build some LEGO and take a picture that is just as fun as that image.
