High-resolution multi-stitched inauguration photo

January 31, 2009 | By | Reply More

At Barack Obama’s inauguration, David Bergman kept busy with his robotic camera mount used in tandem with his Canon G10 camera.  After the inauguration, he used his Macbook Pro to stitch together the resulting 220 images into one gigantic 2gb tiff file.   The resulting 1,474 megapixel image is dramatic and fun to explore. Equally impressive is that the Gigapan camera mount and the G10 camera he used are not expensive–they can both be purchased for less than $1,000 (less than $500 each).
