2.5 Gigapixel Photo

Thanks to Jon for pointing this one out to me, someting interesting to look at on a rather boring friday afternoon.

TNO has produced the largest digital panoramic photo in the world. So, what do we mean by large? After all, modern consumer cameras can easily take a picture with 5 million pixels. Well, we are talking about a photo of completely different dimensions. One with 2.5 billion pixels – that’s 500 times more pixels. If this photo were printed, it would measure 6.67 m by 2.67 m (300 dpi). The photograph shows Delft and its surroundings in the autumn of 2004. It was taken from the top of the Electrical Engineering faculty of Delft University, at a height of about 100 m, by TNO

Went to see “Exorcist: The Beginning” on Saturday night

Went to see “Exorcist: The Beginning” on Saturday night, it was an excellent film and one I would definately watch again. Don’t know about anybody else but I thought it was really quite scary, it certainly had me jumping out of my seat a few time. Definately one that I would recommend for any horror film buff.

Touching the Void

I watched Touching the Void last night on Channel 4 and I was pretty impressed. If you ever get that chance to see it, I would thoroughly recommend it.

Well it’s the weekend now and I think I’m going to have a nice lazy one. Well apart from tomorrow afternoon which I’ll probably spend shopping for Christmas pressents (Yuck!!)
