Can You See Me Now?

Recently I was quoted by Larry Greenemeier of Scientific American Magazine in his March Article: Imagine snapping a panoramic picture from the top of the Empire State Building, then zooming in on a speck to reveal a quarter lying on the sidewalk. That's the promise of single-shot Gigapixel cameras-cameras that shoot images composed of at least one billion pixels, or picture elements. Apart from their obvious appeal to photographers, Gigapixel images also hold tremendous potential for law enforcement and the military.  MORE>

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>

Breaking the Gigapixel Barrier

This page contains what I believe to be one of the highest resolution, most detailed ever created. It is the view from Bryce Point in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. It consists of 196 separate photographs taken with a 6 megapixel digital camera, and then stitched together into one seamless composite. The final image is 40,784 x 26,800 pixels in size, and contains about 1.09 billion pixels...a little more than one gigapixel. MORE>
