3 billion pixels, 12 hours shooting & 6 months work, here are figures for this fantastic gigapixel fine art reproduction of Jesus in Krakow-Lagiewniki (Poland), painted by Adolf Hyła in 1934. Kolor put at your disposal case studie which will tell you how to reproduce a painting or artwork with very high resolution and perfect image stitching.

The shooting was made by Peter Tumidajski & used Gigapan Epic Pro (robotic camera mount), Autopano Giga (image stitching software), EOS 1Ds mark II, Canon 300mm 2.8 ISx 1,4 TC II, OSRAM continue light system with specialised and UV filter, tripod Manfrotto 161Mk2, 120 GB RAW data, MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM. Gigapan Epic Pro is also at the origin of various gigapixels projects such as: Machu Picchu 16 Gigapixels, President Barack Obama’s Inaugural, or a A 14 metre print of the centre of Leicester.

    Why go to such a huge amount of work, then ruin it with the “rays of light” coming from the upper-right corner? Is this some effort to keep people from taking screen caps of the image? It really made the image much less interesting to me.

    I have done a few case studies of this kind of project and found it to be quite easy with Autopano and my Merlin head controlled by Papywizard 8-)
