    Gigapixel stuff is always interesting. I could even read the menu on the restaurant board, though pretty ordinary.

    These are 171 pictures taken with the 40-150mm f2.8 @ 150mm stiched together. That makes an impressive image, even without the high-resolution feature.
    But, the artifacts are not *that* disturbing if you don't pay attention to it.
    Funny detail, if you look at the different clocks on towers and in the street you'll see: 10:15, 10:25, 10:30, 10:35... so it must have taken at least 20 minutes to take this panorama.

    That is impressive. I'm not sure I'd ever make anything like that, but the result is nice to explore.

    I am looking at it on a 5K monitor and it is amazing. I am sold.

    Stunning!
     
  10. It's fun to zoom in close on a computer but I guess I don't really see an application that would really benefit from being 40mp, let alone how ever megapixels this stitched image is.

    if you can't see the benefit of such high res images well...*shrug* ...I guess we're different and that fine. I'm amazed by it.

    I coyld use that in any situation where I could use 1 second or longer exposure time.

    Like waterfalls, still days when no wind etc.
     
  13. I think that you misunderstand me. It IS amazing to be able to zoom in and see so much detail, but in my normal photographic workflow and subsequent appreciation of an image the only time that I inspect an image so closely is when I'm processing it.

    ok, I got ya. To be honest, it's the same for me atm. BUT, that is because there is no amazing details to be amazed by. I hoping that will change :wink:


    I'm also wondering what would happen with the artefacts from movements if you use a bit longer exposures. Say, 1-8 seconds. That might smooth/blur out any strange ugly stuff?

    With gigapixel photography, it hardly matters what type of camera you're using, as you're taking an awful lot of photos and combining them into one big panorama.
