Gigapixel Dresden

It is billed as the largest picture in the world today with a resolution of 297,500 x 87,500 pixels or 26 gigapixels (that’s 26,000 megapixels if you compare it with your own camera’s megapixel count).

The photo was taken on the roof of the building “Haus der Presse” and starts at the left side with the Ostragehege. It was made with the Canon EOS 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens.

It consists of 1,665 full format pictures with 21.4 megapixels, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. Conversion of the 102GB Raw data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 4 days.
