How to make a GigaPixel picture

The finished image is 2.5 billion pixels in size - making it about 500 times the resolution of images produced by good consumer digital cameras. The researchers have put the image on a website which lets viewers explore the wealth of detail that it captures. Tools on the page let viewers zoom in on the city and its surroundings in great detail. The website is already proving popular and currently has more than 200,000 visitors every day. MORE>

Special Forces’ GigaPixel flying spy

Developed under the auspices of Darpa, the camera is the sensor part of Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance – Imaging System or ARGUS-IS. The camera is composed of four arrays, each containing 92 five-megapixel imagers. The other parts of ARGUS are the airborne processing system, which has to deal with a phenomenal torrent of data, and the ground-based element. The airborne part fits into a 500-pound pod. MORE>

GigaPan Panorama Camera Review

The concept is simple and perfect, turn a pocket camera into a Gigapixel producing machine. It was developed at Carnegie Mellon University with support by GoogleCMU and the NASA/Ames Intelligent Robotics Group. The term Gigapixel became popular a few years ago in Geek photo circles when people started stitching multiple images together to create extremely high resolution images.

Gigabitfilm is not a Hoax!

Always committed to prove the optical performance not just in computer simulation, but also on film, Carl Zeiss faced a new challenge early in 2004, when the first prototypes of the new ZM lens family for the Zeiss Ikon camera approached field testing. Until then, Carl Zeiss had identified the orthochromatic black & white film Agfaortho 25 as the material whith the highest resolving power commercially available: 250 linepairs per millimeter. MORE>

World's Largest Digital Photo

A Netherlands company has produced the largest digital panoramic photo in the world. So, what do we mean by large? After all, modern consumer cameras can easily take a picture with 5 million pixels. Well, we are talking about a photo of completely different dimensions. One with 2.5 billion pixels - that's 500 times more pixels than most of the best consumer cameras on the market today. MORE>

Photographer Seeks Resolution

Weighing more than 100 pounds, Flint's camera captures images at 4 gigapixels -- a resolution high enough to photograph four football fields and capture every single blade of grass. When printed at maximum resolution, the images are as big as billboards, but render the finest detail. MORE>

2,045 Images Stitched Together to Create 13-Gigapixel Panorama

I have been constructing large photo images for the past 4-5 years. I was working on large 200+ images, when Doug Lyons made the first stitched gigapixel image,” Maynard said in an interview with DigitalCameraInfo.com. “Everything is experimental in all the images, the photos may work or may not work. What is most important is that I am pushing myself and technology with each image. MORE>

Billion-pixel panoramas from your own camera

A device that lets a camera take pictures with 100 times the resolution of the most advanced models on the market is poised to revolutionise amateur photography. The Gigapan allows people to take pictures which are more than a gigapixel - or 1,000 megapixels - in size, effectively turning a single photograph into a panoramic experience, around which the viewer can navigate on a computer. Yet the actual camera used is no more specialised than a regular digital model.  HERE>

Microsofts HD View

HD View is the camera for the web. Its goal is to create the best picture given (a) a source with high resolution, arbitrary dynamic range, any field of view & color gamut; (b) the user’s interaction; and (c) the display being used. Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) can now stitch your images and output directly to HD View or the new platform independent HD View SL. MORE>
