World's largest digital image from EOS 7D

4250 individual images shot with an EOS 7D have been stitched together to create the world's largest digital image so far. All the JPG images were captured on a single 32GB CompactFlash card, taking up 27.5GB. The size of the final panorama - a view of the city of Dubai - is 44.88 gigapixels.

The EOS 7D was mounted on a GigaPan Epic Pro. "Simply attach your camera to it, then the EPIC directs you through the steps to capture a gigapixel image. You then set the upper left and lower right corners of your panorama and the EPIC works out how many photos your camera will need to take, hundreds or even thousands, and automatically organizes them into the correct rows and columns needed to capture your panorama. The robotic arm clicks away, capturing amazing detail in a short amount of time."

GigaPan Stitch software is included to help you merge all the images into a single photograph. GigaPan Epic Pro, for DSLR cameras, costs $895. Epic 100, suitable for smaller EOS models, costs $449.
