This 826.9MP Photo is the World’s Largest Underwater Panorama

More than two years after actually capturing the image, Brazilian photographer Marcio Cabral has officially been granted the Guinness World Record for the "World's Largest Underwater Panoramic Image."

Behind the Scenes: Visiting the World’s Largest Digital Camera and Optical Lens

A couple of weeks ago, we shared some photos of the world's largest optical lens, which had just been shipped to the SLAC laboratory in Menlo Park, CA, where it would be joined with the world's largest digital camera. Unfortunately, we obviously weren't actually there for the reveal of this record breaking lens, but YouTube channel Physics Girl was.

Photographer Creates the World’s Largest Negative

After hearing that a hundred-year-old building was soon to be demolished in downtown Vancouver, artist Joel Nicholas Peterson had an idea: why not give the building one last hurrah by turning it into one of the world's largest "disposable" cameras?

Peterson did just that, drilling 1/8-inch holes in the four walls of the building facing north, south, east, and west. He used the resulting camera obscura to shoot photos on the world's largest film negatives for a project titled "Blueprints for Observation."

Photos of the Largest Ship in the World Being Built in South Korea

The Maersk Triple E is the largest ship ever built by mankind and is operated by the largest container shipping company in the world. Back in 2011, Maersk signed a contract with Daewoo Shipbuilding in South Korea to have 20 of these gigantic vessels made for $3.8 billion dollars.

Copenhagen-based photographer Alastair Philip Wiper wanted to get closer to this "monumental machine," so he convinced Wired magazine to send him to South Korea to photograph the ships under construction. Wired agreed, and Wiper was given unprecedented access to the shipyard and one of the finished ships.

Do you remember the 320-gigapixel photo taken from atop the BT Tower in London? That 360° panorama, shot by Founder of 360-cities Jeffrey Martin, holds the title of world's largest photo. But just because you have the top spot, doesn't mean you have to stop.

Another of Martin's creations, this one shot from the lower observation deck of the Tokyo Tower, has earned him the number two spot as well.

320-Gigapixel London Panorama Breaks Record for Largest Panoramic Photo

The BT Tower panorama, created by stitching together 48,640 images taken with 7 Canon EOS 7Ds, has officially broken the record for the world's largest panoramic photo. It was taken from atop the BT Tower in London, and you can see a tiny version of it at the top, but the real thing offers a massive, browsable 360-degree view of London in extreme detail.

Photographer Trying to Take The World’s Largest Self-Portrait Camera on the Road

The IMAGO1:1 is the largest life-size self-portrait camera in the world. Exposing beautiful black and white self-portraits on 2ft x 6.5ft silver gelatin photo paper, it's a photographic marvel that is currently housed and used in an art gallery in Berlin.

Susanna Kraus, daughter of IMAGO1:1 co-inventor Werner Kraus, now runs the camera, taking photos for clients and exhibitions alike. But her dream is to respond to the many requests she gets from all over the world by taking the IMAGO1:1 on the road -- for that, she needs your help.
