Give the reviewers some work. A 26 Gigapix panorama of Dresden, currently the largest photo in the world.
Quote
The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens. It consists of 1.665 full format pictures with 21.4 megapixel, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. The converting of 102 GB raw data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 94 hours. With a resolution of 297.500 x 87.500 pixel (26 gigapixel) the picture is the largest in the world. (stand December 2009)

Now that one is nice. Make me want to go in the olympic stadium tower here in Montreal and take a couple of snapshots. Maybe all worthless because of the windows but anyway.

Here's your ticket to making images like that:

While 26 giga-pixels might be a bit much, you can still make some pretty skookum images with this baby.

Stitched panoramas do well, I noticed. The software also got much better. Did anybody try the stitching package that came with the 5D-MKII?

what?  there are stitching packages with the 5D MKII

I have stitched around 6 photos together for microstock panos, just using photoshop, and it works very well.  Submitting those to the micros though, they have to be downsized a lot.

Still unacceptable for microstock. Sensor spots in the sky. Rejected :(

Me too.  Computing power is what holds me back from venturing into video.   :(

Here is my attempt at a multi-image horizontal/vertical build....

Loon Lake Panorama View, located in El Dorado county, California, This shot consists of 36 different images stitched together to form a single image that was 51,444 pixels wide by 8,532 pixels tall. I reduced this image by 50% so that it is 25,944 pixels in width (did'nt have enough memory to convert the full sized image).This was then diced up into 1500 separate images to produce the zooming/panning abilities without downloading a massive image across the internet.

The scroll wheel works to zoom and you can grab the image to slide it around when zoomed in.

3 hours of robot shooting + 94 hours stitching together 1,665 photos = 1 really big snapshot ..... potential copyrights, bad composition, limited commercial value, total waste of time LMAO !!!!!!

I use CS4 now to stitch my panos, but I use to use a great tool called ArcSoft Panorama Maker.  I had version 4 and it did great.  Its very easy to use for beginners also.

Now that I use Lightroom, CS4 is easy also.  I just select all the images I want to put together and right click.  there is a "Send to CS4 ..." option that makes it easy.
