World’s Largest Digital Photograph is a 70-gigapixel panorama of Budapest.

Last month, 360world, a Hungarian company took two 25-megapixel Sony A900 cameras fitted with 400mm Minolta lenses and 1.4X teleconverters and a robotic camera mount from 360world to the top of  Janos Hill on the outskirts of the Buda side of Budapest. It was no easy feat to make the 70-gigapixel photo, and it took two days to shoot, and two solid days of post-processing that resulted in a single 200GB file — not to mention a 15-meter-long printed copy of the photograph to display it to the public.

It’s just been a few months since a 45-gigapixel panorama of Dubai claimed the title of world’s largest digital photograph, but it’s now the 70-gigapixel, 360-degree panorama of Budapest is the new king of the hill.

When you go to the site, use the tools on the left side to zoom in and out, and to move around the picture left click the mouse and move it.

It is incredable that you can zoom in to the windows on a house on the other side of the river!!

The photos on the bottom of the main photo are links that cause it to zoom into sites of the city and the photo.

Have fun with this!!!
