David Bergman used his MacBook Pro and a Gigapan Imager to create an amazing 1,474 megapixel photo of President Obama’s Inauguration.
I made a panoramic image showing the nearly two million people who watched President Obama’s inaugural address. To do so, I clamped a Gigapan Imager to the railing on the north media platform about six feet from my photo position. The Gigapan is a robotic camera mount that allows me to take multiple images and stitch them together, creating a massive image file.
The final photo contains 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took David more than six and a half hours for his Macbook Pro to put together the final file. The completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes.
