8/28    Hi, anybody printed a photo image to a big plotter?  Something like
        36"x36"?  I'm wondering how many megapixels the image need to
        have in order for the print to "look good".  There is a rule of
        thumb?  Like 6 megapixel is good for X size print.  10 megapixel
        is good for Y size print.  Thanks.
        \_ You don't need that many more megapixels for much bigger prints,

9/28    A lot of photos I take come out blurry. A lot of them are clear,
        too, but the proportion of blurry photos is high. This has led me
        to take more photos than I otherwise would in hopes of getting a
        clear one. I took some photos of the Rio grande and they
        were all awesome, but the next day I took photos of landscapes
        and almost all of them were blurry. Could it be the camera or is

How I Made a 1,474-Megapixel Photo During President Obama's Inaugural Address Wow. I covered my first inauguration and what an inauguration it was. Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States in a ceremony on the west front of the US Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Before Tuesday, I had photographed five presidents and covered big events including the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and concerts like Live 8 and Live Earth. I made a panoramic image showing the nearly two million people who watched President Obama's inaugural address. Gigapan Imager to the railing on the north media platform about six feet from my photo position. The Gigapan is a robotic camera mount that allows me to take multiple images and stitch them together, creating a massive image file. My final photo is made up of 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took more than six and a half hours for the Gigapan software to put together all of the images on my Macbook Pro and the completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes. You can also double click to zoom in and double click again to get even closer. If there's enough interest, I might make the image available as a large print. I'll write another post in the next few days showing some of the more traditional photos I shot, but they're only a "measly" 12-megapixels each. David Bergman made a 1,474 megapixel (yes, that's 15 gigapixels) image of Barack Obama's inauguration. This remarkable photo is a panoramic composite of 220 individual photos-quite something! January 22nd, 2009 at 5:14 pm If you could somehow manage to make and sell a seamless 194''x80'' print of this available for sale (about 300dpi), I could imagine a lot of walls covered with this even if the print cost $500. January 22nd, 2009 at 10:03 pm David, You were very skilled to capture such a beautiful image. I would love to know what your plans are to distribute this image. Please let me know if you are looking for partner to print this for distribution. January 22nd, 2009 at 10:54 pm This is an absolutely breathtaking photo. I would DEFINITELY like to purchase large prints and am really hoping they become available. One question: some of the military guys' faces looked warped like they had turned during consecutive shots but those were the only ones that I could see up behind Obama that were out of focus or distorted. January 23rd, 2009 at 2:22 am Absolutely stunning piece of history. I had found Yo-Yo Ma, but was so pleased to have even found him and the other members of the quartet that I didn't zoom in far enough to notice the iPhone! Can anyone tell me who the white man sitting right in front of The Supremes is? Pretty hilarious all of them with their hats on when they know they are off camera (so to speak). Cheney has one just like Abramoff does/did and I have also. I wouldn't have expected that you'd get such an overall clear, high resolution result from a G10, even if it's 220 source files, and would have assumed the need for a DSLR instead. It was a lot of fun to scan the photo positions and see all the remote cameras (some in interesting places) and tight quarters for the photographers. I can't imagine the amount of individual prep work that went into all of those setups. January 23rd, 2009 at 3:01 am Ok, now if we could click on each person and find out who they are, their LinkedIn and Facebook links, we would be done :-) 34. January 23rd, 2009 at 5:48 am Hi from across the pond - David, this is incredible! I've linked to your picture from our magazine's website as your work should be seen by everyone. The detail is great - I particularly love the press pit directly opposite where you were standing :) 42. images shot from a Canon G10 Bridge camera on a Gigapan robotic camera mount, David Bergman's incredibly detailed panorama is filled with pieces of information that you previously weren't able or bothered to see.

January 23rd, 2009 at 10:43 am The detail of this photo is astounding! I was able to zoom in on the horn section of the Marine Corps Band and read the sheet music! I hope our new president requests a copy for his presidential library; it is a keepsake and historical piece worthy of such an honor. January 23rd, 2009 at 11:30 am Denzel Washington can be seen standing on the lower floor (blue hat). Spielberg, Oprah and some other billionaires may be found in this crowd. January 23rd, 2009 at 11:33 am well the gigapan browsing kindof sucks, you'd be the man to torrent the original. I love nasa for the fact they give the hubble photos away full res free without making you zoom in through some slow lame web interface. this is an amazing 15 Gigapixel photo of Obama's Inaugural Address by David Bergman. It is stiched together from 220 Canon G10 12 megapixel images using Gigapan.
