Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 captures 71-gigapixel panorama of Budapest  
Tuesday, July 27, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
A pair of Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 cameras were used to shoot what is claimed to be the world's highest resolution multi-image photograph to date, a 71 gigapixel, 360° panorama of Budapest. The project, sponsored by Sony, Microsoft and Epson was shot about two months ago from the city's Elisabeth Tower. The result is an extremely detailed if somewhat hazy look at the Hungarian capital.

Once on the panorama website, click Galéria to view photos of the setup. As you'll see, gear included two Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 cameras, each with a Minolta AF 400mm f/4.5 APO G + 1.4X teleconverter attached and perched on a custom-built automated platform.

As of this writing only the Hungarian language version of the site is online, the alternate-language buttons don't appear to be working.

Thanks to Hans G. for bringing this to our attention.
