Actually I originally found this from a PopSci article, and a guy made a 4,000 megapixel camera using a 1950's spyplane camera... He took a picture of a cliff/beach, and at one corner of the picture (across the cliff) you saw 3 guys with telescopes checking out the beach, then if you follow their line of sight they're checking out chicks on the beach. I'll try to find it.

Found it.

By the way, the 2nd picture of the 3 guys can be seen next to the flags on the right side of the picture... Yes, those tiny little flags...





One more 38% crop gets us close to 1:1 with the scanned Gigapxl digital image. It is now clear what is going on. One person with a telescope or long lens and two with binoculars, all looking downward. Each of them has a head covering as though settled in for a long stay. What is so interesting?

As it happens this beach, also known as Black's Beach, is a clothing-optional area for San Diego naturists!

These are people watching; specifically people using binoculars and telescopes to watch a beach full of naked people. (Though not shown here, the little dots on the beach in the first image are well defined cherubs in the Gigapxl image.)

that is insane! also, does that require a NWS flag if it's a naturalist beach?

these pictures remind me of the scene in Blade Runner when he keeps zooming into a picture and then cropping and cropping until he finds a piece of snake scale and off to the far corner---the culprit.

life imitating art.

I don't understand...they show a bunch of photos on the webpage, and they say that these photos have 1 gigapixel.....but they only show a much reduced resolution version of them? I guess I'm missing the point....

I remember there was one picture on the web somewhere where you could in fact zoom in and out of it, so it really was a gigapixel picture.

And of course lets not forget Google Earth. How many giga-gigapixels is that?
