Hi-res camera

Recommended Posts

Photo taken with a hi-res camera at the Obama inauguration. The camera has stupid amount of megapixels meaning you can zoom in for detailed close-ups on nearly the whole crowd. Most of my afternoon at work consisted of trying to spot famous faces in the crowd, apparently Robert De Niro is visible but all I could spot was Barack Obama (who doesn't count I guess) and some random punter who looked a total fanny in a pair of bright blue earmuffs.

Impressive anyway and a bit of fun.

not quite. it's taken with a normal camera fitted to a robotic mount which calculates and stitches lots of pictures together to create a huge one.

still pretty impressive though! if you look closely you can also see people with weird deformed faces due to the stitching of the photos.

yeah was gonna say its a panoramic camera. You can do it with a standard camera, but motion would be picked up, and would look odd
Its not a panoramic camera necessarily. Its about 150 photos all stitched together at the edgeas, which is why there is some clipping at the edges.

Fuck, that's crazy. I can see Bill and Hillary Clinton and George W Bush and Condoleesa Rice as well from the section behind Obama. There is also a man with a motion blurred face, weird.

no sorry, I meant images stitched together to form a 'fake' panoramic like:

is a more artistic way of doing the same style or...
