Supposedly a picture is worth a thousand words, but this crazy 320-gigapixel panorama of London has got to be worth a little more than that. This record-shattering shot is actually some 48,640 stitched together into one ludicrous goliath. You wish your camera was even one one-hundredth as cool.
The image was shot from atop London's BT Tower using an array of 7 Canon EOS 7Ds shooting in all directions to create an interactive panorama you could click-and-drag around in for hours. You really have to see it for yourself to get a feel for the scope, but if you were to print the whole thing out at a standard resolution, it'd measure 322 feet by 79, or almost as long as a football field and half the width.
The last record contender was a 80 gigapixel sucker. Impressive, but nothing compared to this monster, which took weeks to stitch together into its final form. Sure, 2.6 gigapixel panoramas from the tallest tower in the world and 1.8 gigapixel drone shots are still breath-taking, but this is just insane. Check it out. [Engadget, Petapixel]
