Find yourself complaining about your camera’s megapixel deficiency? Well, skip over this story, as it will make you crap your pants!
The Place: Czech Republic - specifically the reading room of the super old and private Strahov monastery.
The Culprit: Jeffrey Martin and his bionic robotic GigaPanBot: “The GigaPanBot is an automatic rotating pan and tilt head designed to rotate and trigger a digital DSLR camera. It can be used in combination with fish eye lenses to shoot fast 360° panoramas or with tele lenses up to 600mm to shoot multi-row…”
The Outcome: A massive 40 GigaPixel – 360 Degree – 283 GB Panoramic Digital Image! Yea, I said 283 GB image! The finished images was stitched together from about 2,947 separate shots, taking a computer a little over 4 days to complete. Sweet jesus! Now that a new record is set, some one better start daisy-chaining those GigaPanBot cameras together, for a single 360 degree shot of New York…..from the Empire State Building. Just Looked over at my Canon T2i……it just shed a tear…..
