70-Gigapixel Panorama of Budapest Takes Over as World’s Largest Photo

Just a couple months after we reported that a 45-gigapixel photo of Dubai had become the world’s largest, a new panorama has arrived to steal the crown. 70 Billion Pixels Budapest is a 70-gigapixel panorama of Budapest created using a setup of two 25-megapixel Sony A900 cameras fitted with 400mm Minolta lenses and 1.4X teleconverters. Four days of shooting resulted in 20,000 images, and an additional two days of post-processing produced a single 200 GB file. If printed, the size of the photo would be about two apartment blocks long and ten stories tall.

Here’s a photograph of the setup used:

You can head on over to their website to check out the photograph in a special viewer. You can zoom in to take a close look at the tiny little homes in the distance.

Any guesses as to how long it will be until the crown is passed on?
