Gigapixel photos

A while back, Max Lyons created what is thought to be the first gigapixel photo. The final image is 40,784×26,800 pixels in size, and contains about 1.09 billion pixels. It was created by merging together 196 individual 6 megapixel photos.

Now, researchers in the Netherlands have created a 2.5 Gigapixel photo. The detail is simply amazing, you just have to go and have a look. You can zoom in on a clock tower miles in the distance and see the time as clear as day. But when viewed in a zoomed out mode the clock tower appears mere millimeters wide.

Now that my photo is up for a free upgrade and I'm hoping to get one of those 1 megapixel cameras…it somehow seems a bit low-res.
