Gigapan Posts 59,783 X 24,658 pixel or 1,474 megapixel Picture of Inauguration


  Gigapan has posted a picture of the inauguration which is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels in size.  This is composed of 220 pictures taken to form this amazing panorama.  When you see the picture you think, big deal, but when you realize you can zoom all the way to the sniper team on the far off building and see them fairly clearly, you quickly change your mind.  This is not the first picture of its kind, but it is a great picture and worth taking a look.


This picture has been up for a day or two and if you have not already taken a look at it, I highly urge you to do so.

Casio Releasing 1000FPS Digital Cameras


  Casio is releasing two new 9 megapixel cameras with the ability to record 720p video at 1000 frames per second.  The EX-FC100 (5x optical Zoom) and EX-FS100 (3x Optical Zoom) will allow us to make extremely slow motion videos such as the show "Time Warp" (only slightly slower) and give us high def video to boot.  It sounds like Casio is trying to one-up the competition with features found on more high-end devices.  There is no word on price or release date yet, but if reasonable, these could be a great pocket recording device with some nice features, assuming the CCD or CMOS sensor performs well.
