    This picture was taken during the oath ceremony of President elect of the U.S.

    The picture was taken by a 1.4 Giga Pixel camera, its GIGA. not MEGA pixel, so that will be equivalent to 1400 Megapixel where as general cameras are around 8-10 megapixels.

    Once you click on the link, you will the image in its entirity.

    Towards the left there is the scale where you can enlarge the photo, from the screen (default) view, you cannot even makeout Obama. Search for him and then enlarge the picture moving the key on your left.You can see others like Mr & Mrs Bush ,the Clintons EVERYONE.

    It might take some time for the pic to become clear, but you will be amazed at the clarity and then just wonder how big the total size of the picture will be.

    Can use them to do a group photo for the entire school's teachers, administrators and students. That will be quite interesting...

    Not sure about exactly how fast Gagapan works but just by looking at the sample pic TS has linked, those people also are not standing still but most of the pictures are quite ok although I can see someone without a head and some with quite a few pairs of legs...
