The New 80-Gigapixel “Largest Photo in the World”

The New 80-Gigapixel

Captured by Jeffrey Martin using a SLR camera with a 400mm lens, the 360-degree photo of London City has set a new record for the World’s Largest Photo.

It’s 80-gigapixels, that’s a resolution of 400,000 x 200,000 pixels, and if you were to print it at 300dpi you would need a piece of paper measuring 35 x 17 metres. There are 7886 high-resolution individual photos, all shot from the top of the Centre Point building – that is 36 stories high – over a 3-day period. The images were put together using a super-powerful Fujitsu Celsius workstation which comprised of dual 6-core CPUs, 192GB of RAM, and a 4GB graphics card.
