Hi Everyone,

How good is this latest digital camera technology.
Picture of inauguration taken by a robotic digital camera of 1,474 megapixels.
Scan, double click and zoom to any section of the crowd....wait a few seconds ...... and it will automatically focus for you. See how many celebrities you can pick out in the crowd .... Michelle, daughters, GW, Clinton, Hillary etc are easy to find. How many others.....

This is the link if it does not insert properly:

Did you spot the guy near the tree with the balaklava and sunnies on? Wonder what he was up to. Then again, there were quite a few with their faces covered. Obviously a cold day. One of the photographers on the white tower looks like Glenn Robbins.

Hillary Clinton, just below the stairs on the left of Obama, does not look real happy. Obviously had not yet been offered the job as Head of State and still peed off with losing...

that is unreal... but what is happening with some peoples faces in the wedge of seats to the back left of the pres? wonder who they really are? and why the photoshop cut and paste is so bad? surely they have geeks in black as well that could do a better job than that...

If you scan each row, you will see there's even what appears to be Obi-Wan Kenobi towards the back of the wedge... these guys also have a sense of humour!

A. One.... the other 999,999 to make fools of themselves... :)

Sorry about the sarcasm... but what a circus!

David Bergmann made this Gigapan image from the north press platform during President Obama's inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC on January 20, 2009. It's made up of 220 images and the final image size is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels.

There are a few known stitching errors in the image.

A NEW VERSION of the photo with all of the stitching errors corrected can be seen here:

didnt believe that, so I went investigating

It's made up of 220 images and the final image size is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixel, which does explain why you can zoom in and see so much detail

but its not quite the same as a single image is it
