Bentley Motors unveiled another ground-breaking new Gigapixel photograph — one of the world’s most detailed landscape images.
At the heart of the photograph sits a Bentley Flying Spur W12 S in the luxury marina of Dubai. Zoom out, and the groundbreaking NASA-derived technology of the Gigapixel image allows you to explore and experience the city panorama in intricate detail, while beyond it, the curvature of the earth is visible.
Stunning images we saw on zooming in
A camera was suspended 264 meters (866 ft) off the ground, where it was up against hazy 40°C (104°F) temperatures and 25 km/h (16 mph) winds.
The finished image was made up of 57.7 billion carefully-stitched pixels, all of which were edited to make sure the light and color levels were perfectly matched across the whole image. All told, the process involved 1,825 individual frames and 48 hours worth of editing, while the completed image took a staggering 18 hours to download.
