Description

10Gpix with just 96 18Mpix images: cheat, or be sensible - your call. This image is made by combining images shot at different focal lengths. The idea is to use a wide angle for the whole scene and a long lens for the detail. Of course if the details are to be preserved at 1:1 then the pixels in the wide angle shots have to be blown up making the gigapan enormous with no detail in most of it. On the other hand, the image only records detail where there is detail to be seen.

    Using a second camera hadn't occurred to me but then neither had the idea of carrying two sets of gear around :-) You seem to suggest you have made images like this yourself. Do you have links? Also what do you use to stitch? AP?

    It is even possible to use a separate camera to shoot the sky. Parallax is not much of an issue. Getting the clouds on the horizon at the same time is required for a good stitch. Exposure, atitching, and blending is an ongoing challenge.
