And I thought the 320 megapixel camera used on a Hawaiian telescope was huge...

Good greif! From TWO AND A HALF MILES AWAY humans are about 10 pixels tall. And that's just the GIGAPIXEL camera, yet alone the 4 gigapixel one.

Wow...

It's scary what can actually be zoomed into on the pictures in the image gallery. Especially the first one.

Incidentally, a four billion pixel, uncompressed, 16-bit per component image is a 24 gigabyte data file.

I read about this. They just shoot a lot of pictures and combine them into one large, 24GB image. On some of them you can see cars, but as you take a closer look, the cars will be chopped of or, because of the combining, seem to eat each other...

I found a site that has a picture off that gigapixel camera.

http://triton.tpd.tno.nl/gigazoom/Delft2.htm

You can zoom in and see the numbers on the licenses lates of the car.

it works now, i had to copy and paste the address. Firefox is getting on my nerves....

on-topic: that's pretty cool. I got a kick out of the "people watchers." I wish that they had the pictures full size to download though. idk how big they would be, but it would be fun to zoom in on the golden gate bridge and such.

Geez. I turn my 5.1 megapixel camera down to 3.2 megapixels because I haven't found the need to print posters (nor can my printer do it anyway), and 5.1 megapixel file sizes are too big for everyday pics.

So if I carried a 4 gigapixel camera around in my shirt pocket, on this PC's 40 GB hard drive I could store.......one picture.



Hey wait, I could take a picture of my hairy manb00b and wallpaper my home with it!

**adds 4 gigapixel camera to Christmas wish list**
