So you put your 40K to the camera and passed on The Volt ?

THAT is an amazing camera

It's not a 17 Gigapixel Camera, it's many exposures from an ordinary camera stitched together. Almost any camera can produce a shot like this or even larger, depending on your patience. What you need is a Giagapan.

That will come in mighty handy after TSHTF and the feds are looking for preppers holed up somewhere in the wilds.

First of all, bullshiite. The camera zooms and the characters look like they are from a game. The horses and buildings look fake. Fail.

Second of all, first of all.

Imagine when they start coming out with 7,000 pentabyte cameras.

Sound ridiculous? Maybe as ridiculous as a 17 gigabyte camera sounded back in 1993.

Saw a similar photo taken in London. It zoomed 5 miles down the Themes River, past just about as many bridges. The most distant bridge you could easily make out minute details of carvings on the side of the bridge which were only a matter of a couple of inches (they were clear and only “very” mildly distorted).

Yes. Yes I have. Much better.

No. No I won't. Just because I don't feel like it.

Well, that certainly clears things up.

Since you have a much better pic, I’ll leave you alone to enjoy it. Sorry for all the bother.

It takes more than pixels. The lens must also have the resolution to discriminate at the pixel level.

Wow! You can zoom in to see the people at the top of Half Dome. And then zoom down to the horse stables and see the horse poop. Pretty good lens.

Super impressive, to say the least. BUT - check it out - go to the long street directly West. Halfway down, with the clump of trees on the right side, before the trees, under the store with the red awning with a star, you’ll see TWO Michelle Obamas!!! (don’t get scared - not really, but two of the same lady.) So very cool but not a one-snapshot moment-in-time 360 like God can take.

Again - still VERY amazing.

What Laz does with his Helen Thomas collection is his own business.

Let’s encourage him to keep it that way.

The most recurring fantasy I have, when pleasuring myself, is Helen Thomas doing a bikini show on a model runway, while techno music thumps in the background.

Oh, it doesn't get better than that.
