At Blink Image, we regularly stitch multiple photos together to create the perfect composition forour images. The resultant stitched panoramas can sometimes be up to 20,000 pixels across – sometimes more. However, a team in Italy have recorded a 46 terabyte image created from 70,000 individual photographs painstakingly stitched together over two months!
“A team of five photographers has created what they describe as the world’s highest definition panoramic photograph by stitching 70,000 digital images together to create a 365 gigapixel photograph. Recorded using a Canon EOS 70D with the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens on a 2x converter, the picture took 35 hours of shooting over the course of 15 days just to capture. A further two months were required in post-production to stitch the images together, creating a 46 terabyte finished product.
The project, called in2white and led by Italian photographers Filippo Blengini and Alessandra Bacchilega, took the team to altitudes of 3500m/11,482ft and temperatures of -10°C as they recorded every detail of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the European Alps, and the surrounding landscape. Using a Clauss precision pan-and-tilt head the team was able to accurately position the camera and lens combination to shoot tiny sections of the scene in an organized and methodical way, so that every inch of the subject was covered.” DPReview.com
