Typepad Import Image

This time it took two Sony A900s with 400mm lenses (with 1.4x teleconverters) and 20,000 images, but there’s a new king when it comes to enormous digital photos. According to a quick Wired article, the process took four days and resulted in a 70-gigapixel image of Budapest that you can click around by following this link. The process was once-again powered by the Gigapan panoramic system.

While the sheer size of these massive images are certainly impressive, the images are restrained to subjects that aren’t particularly exciting to look at. We’re excited to see this implemented in some more unique ways as the process becomes more streamlined.
