    Not so easy to hide in a crowd anymore...image at the link below was taken with a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera (2100 Mega Pixels.)
    700,000 people in the photo…pick a spot and click a few times.
    ( reminds me of the "Google Earth" capability )

    NOT! I'm not sure if this is an attempt at humor (GigaGag ?) or if you misread the caption, but it clearly states that it is a composite of 216 photos. Do the math and the sensor was about 10 or maybe 12 MP before cropping and stitching.

    Old tech, but very neat none-the-less.

    I didn't invent or calculate or make anything up...found the site on the Internet and posted the link.
    Bottom like, seems to be an incredible piece of capability.

    The link doesn't say anything about a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera, you did.

    Actually I never said the link did.
    Must have been in the accompanying text of the Email that sent the link to me...I copied & pasted it here.
    I'm sorry this has turned out to be such a problem for you...

    I don't quite understand this sentence, but as I said in my first reply, old tech but neat. This is nothing more than what I would term a bi-directional panorama, probably shot with an ordinary 12 MP camera. IMO, what makes it most neat is a skillfully crafted web page that lets you rapidly zoom in on any section of the very large composite image (again, neat, but hardly incredible).

    Not a problem for me at all. It just seemed to me (from your own words in the OP) that you were thinking this was shot with a 2100 Mega Pixel camera. It was not, and from your replies I'm still not sure you realize that.
