An image taken of landscape in Dubai has taken the top spot as the world’s largest digital photo. This gigapixel photo that can be viewed at GigaPan.org, topped out at 45 gigapixels, thus if printed, it would be the size of around 1200 billboards. It has been taken by a photographer called Gerald Donovan using a camera that utilizes technology employed by NASA’s Mars Rover. It’s just amazing, but the question is: When this will be commercially available for consumers? And most importantly, is it really needed for regular people?
