Inspired by my recent trip to the Gigapan Conference (www.cmu.edu/events/gigapixel-science Will open in a new tab or window/) I thought I'd see how high res an image I could get. I had to cut it off at 1625, 18 megapixel images because my 16GB card was getting full.

This is an 360 degree pano of the University of Chicago's new field site in Western Michigan. I put the camera on top of my truck on a tall tripod to get as much height as possible. It took about 45 minutes to shoot the whole pano. I set the camera with auto-focus on so the close-up shots of the grass would still be in focus, but I had to listen carefully and jump oup on the roof of the car whenever the camera missed a shot. When you're shooting a,1600 image panorama the last thing you want is to have sort out missing images in the gigapan stitcher. Took nearly 24 hours to stitch the image.

We are installing a couple of solar powered wireless network cameras here in the next few weeks. One or two gigapixel timelapse cameras will go in next winter to film plant research plots (more info here: www.gigavision.org Will open in a new tab or window).
