Re: And You Thought Your Megapixel Camera Was Good

This is a shot of Panorama, taken with a camera maybe 7D or 5DmkII, about 1000-2000 shots merged for a Canon, you can use a 13mp camera and take 1000 shots then you will have a 13GP shot, or i use my 10mp camera and shooting 1300 shots, so i cant imagine how much i will get if i use my Canon 21mp camera taking 1000 shots or even much larger using my Hasselblad 60mp taking 2000 shots?
I saw those shots on a website of Gigapixel panos shots, thanks for the link.

I am very tempted to buy one of these systems.

I guess I am missing something, but to me my first impression was of a wide angle out-of-focus shot made sharper if you zoom in on something.

What the point here?

for me, steve, the point was just how far they could zoom in and still have a decent clarity. that, to me, was pretty amazing.
