Never mind the pixels, what lens has that sort of resolution?

How many megapixels are there in a gigapixel?

Sanderscapes - I believe that would 1000 megapixels.

Apparently there are various ways to do this kind of photography - the picture above is a mosaic of many pictures. I don't know how you feel about that, but I felt just slightly disappointed. The requirements to the lens must still be very high - not only in resolution.

Maybe an idea for the weekly contest

Have seen these before, as Joe says, its a composite I wonder how much time they spend in photoshop

Its still very impressive but I feel this particular image turns the observer into a bit of a voyeur.....

PS; I couldn't find the naked woman

EDIT the link posted by Duncan is one I've seen before on another forum, not sure if it was me that posted the link on here some time ago?

Ok own up, who's looked longer than say, 3 minutes looking for the naked woman?

It's kinda like an adult version of "Where's Wally"
