    Default Here's what a 100GB panorama look like ...

    http://www.dresden-26-gigapixels.com/dresden26GP

    Imagine trying to stitch this panorama yourself ... wonder how many kopi you need!
    The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens. It consists of 1.665 full format pictures with 21.4 megapixel, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. The converting of 102 GB raw data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 94 hours. With a resolution of 297.500 x 87.500 pixel (26 gigapixel) the picture is the largest in the world. (stand December 2009)
    That was taken off the website. 94 hours ... if 1 cuppa for every 3 hours, you'll need 31.3 cups of coffee!!!! Luckily the blade server don't need to have coffee breaks!

    Cheers!

    Wah, you both not asleep yet, sheaffey and Tupi Guy!

    He was using an automated panorama device to shoot accurately. All he needed to do was just sit back and observe from his notebook screen.
