GigaPan Epic Pro helps create 44,880 megapixel panorama of Dubai skyline, world’s largest digital photo

What will you ever use a photo this big for?  I still haven’t even found use for anything bigger than 10 megapixel.

How did the world’s foremost manufacturer of robotic camera mounts advertise its flagship product? Simple: it grabbed it, a Canon EOS 7D and some round-trip tickets to Dubai, and set about shooting the largest billboard in the world. Local photographer Gerald Donovan shot a nearly 45 gigapixel panorama of towering spires, desert and sky with his new GigaPan Epic Pro and a couple of the company’s engineers for logistical support. You’ll find the zoom-in-practically-forever image at our source link, a PR and making-of video after the break, and the cash to buy yourself a similar rig in your offshore bank account.
