woah. i just zoomed in on the couple on the bike and that's not even visible on the old one.
uh oh, it's fake. i just found a seam.
Nah, gigapixel cameras/pictures are legit. We were checkin' them out @ #md.

pretty freaky that you can zoom in and read license plates /images/graemlins/blush.gif
Well, I don't expect legit pictures to sport a man without his torso and head... xP
The Hubble Telescope has something like 4 gigapixel, its not really a standard digital camera tho /images/graemlins/wink.gif if you pointed it at earth you could aparently see the cigarettes in you pockets, cool pic

Wow, they've got some funny lookin' cars over there.
It's not a fake. The entire picture wasn't taken at one time. Here's a link with more info:
I like how you can read the writing on the crane, which you can't even see at full zoom-out.
However, I did see a light/dark seam and found the deadly zombie half-guy (next to the guy with a little bit of his head missing).
They do? Looked like pretty bog standard Peugots, Vauxalls, Audis and Mercedes to me........impressive that you can read the license plates I thought.

Anyone here ever check out the Keyhole demo when it first came out? It's a program that let's you start from a view of an entire continent and then zoom into the street you grew up on. Apparently you have to subscribe to it now, but I remember it was pretty cool to zoom around the world.

There's something weird going on with the perspective, check out the parking lot towards the right of the picture, where you can see someone riding a bike. The cars that are parallel to the camera look stretched out, and the cars perpindicular look squashed. That's why I thought they were funny looking. Strange.

Google recently acquired them.
Heh, theres a bus meshed in with the front of a car. Now I can really tell the picture wasn't all taken at once.
Its made from 600 different shots. explanation for the severed torsos here:
*edit* sorry Apostle, missed your post.

Made by NASA and free (i think).. But its only black and white when you zoom in (unless they changed it recently)
