My birthday gift this year is a little photography robot called a Gigapan.Â One places a point-and-shoot digital camera on the base, calibrated the setup, and the stand will go to town and take a crap-ton of pictures and stitch them together with an the included software.Â Here was my first test:
Use the zoom slider and your mouse to poke around.
The next two taken at Arcadia University came out a bit nicer. The one below is made of about 200 pictures.
My favorite was taken at an Arcadia hardscape and consists of 400 pictures or so and generated a 2.5GB tiff file.
These are nice, but still pales compared to others composed of hundreds more images.
Teejay had the novel idea of doing a “Where’s Waldo?” gigapixel take involving costume changes at a sports stadium or some other large venue. Who’s interested?
