Making of a Gigapixel Photograph | Bentley Mulsanne



http://lookcloser.bentleymotors.com
How do you capture a Mulsanne? To really do it justice, you need to take the world’s most extraordinary car photograph. This year, Bentley set out to do just that.

In this film we tell the astounding story of the creation of the Bentley Gigapixel – a ground-breaking photograph consisting of 53 billion pixels, creating a level of detail that’s never been seen before in car photography.

Go behind the scenes with our team and see how we captured the new Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, on the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, in an extraordinary 53 billion pixels.

    Ok, what about large format camera? Why not?

    Whoever came up with the idea is brilliant. Great job.

  • This is fake. How come the bridge is blurred in the exact same point where the car is super steady and sharp? Just check dpreview comments.

    A fascinating idea this is! Oh so creative! But does anyone know where one can find out more details as to how this shoot was actually done? Starting of knowing nothing…. looking at the GigaPan website and the video above, i gather that this image is conceptually done by software image stitching. One of the opening slides says the photograph has 53 billion pixels. In the video we see a Nikon DSLR being used. Heading to Nikon's US website the most expensive model appears to be a Nikon D5 that has 20.8 million pixels. Using a calculator, the camera would conceptually have to be fired 2548 times to give us our 53 billion pixels. I would imagine the system would incorporate some overlap for the stitching to work well ( i have no idea in detail how it works having just seen it here ) and so their might even be the need for more images to be captured! In the video it looks like the seats stitching was taken using that long telephoto lens. So some questions result from this…. How many lenses i.e focal lengths were used for this shoot? How is that final shot of the stitching so sharp… i.e highly unlikely it was taken with the car moving. So was the car stopped on the bridge by way of careful planning and permission to facilitate the shot? Or was that final shot grafted in? If anyone can shed any light on the technicalities of this shoot, I would be most grateful. Oh… P.S. I'm also curious as to what the final file size would have been for the final stitched photo! Assuming jpeg photos were taken, the D5's ( via some quick research ) file size per image can go up to around 14 MB. Back to the calculator shows that adding the file sizes for those 2500+ images comes up to 35.6 GB! Lastly I would like to say that I am coming from a position of admiration for the whole idea of this shoot… not to run it down or be negative about it. I just want to understand more about this fascinating project and learn what i can from those kind knowledgeable folks here in You Tube. Big thanks Bentley!

    If the camera is tracking the moving car, the background wile blurred. If you was taking a photo of the bridge at that spot and the car drove through at the moment the photo was taken then the car would be blurred.
