Saw this in another forum and thought I'd pass it on...

This image by a S. African virtual tour firm really is exceptional.

Some details as to the size of this image:

It was created by stitching 1850,fully zoomed (x 20 optical zoom), 10 MegaPixel images together.
The time it took from the first shot (top left) and last shot (lower right) being taken, was about 3 hours.
Its 205 000 pixels wide.
That equates to a printout of about 90 m x 15 m!
The end result was a 25 GigaBytes RAW file which takes about an hour to open on my Macbook Pro.


and their important hint:

It might not look like much on first glance, but try the following and be ready to be blown away: click on the full screen button (bottom right) and then ZOOM !!

Thats amazing.

I saw some old man doing something similar on the Royal Flower Show this year. It was nothing compared to this though.
