ABOUT GIGAPIXEL QUITO

The picture was made with the 50 megapixel Canon 5DSR and a 100-400mm lens. It consists of 912 photos with each one having a .RAW file size of over 60MB. 

 

To create the image a robotic camera mount was used to capture over 900 images with a Canon 5DSR and 400mm lens. 

 

Digital stitching software was then used to combine them into a uniform high-resolution picture.

With a resolution of 300,000 x 55,313 pixels the picture is the highest resolution photo of Quito ever taken.

 

This allows you instantly view and explore high‑resolution images that are over several gigabytes in size. At a size of over 20ft (6m), a gigapixel print retains jaw-dropping detail even when viewed a few inches away.
