If the goal was to put as many pixels as possible on every foot of real estate, the choice of the 7D makes sense, but even more pixels could have been put on everything in the scene had a 600/4 or even an 800/5.6 been used.


The 400mm 2.8 was paired with a 2x extender, so this was already at 800mm 5.6. Also going to an even longer focal length also means taking an even larger number of pictures than the 48000 that they took right now, and that also means adding a few more months to the 3 months that the computer took in processing the current pano and so on. I assume this group which has been able to pull off this gigantic effort must have considered all the tradeoffs extensively before heading to do something of this magnitude.

Instead of using 400 f/2.8 + 2xTC combo, I wonder why they didn't use 800 f/5.6 lens and avoid IQ degradation caused by the 2xTC ?

Awesome. But I have to ask the obvious... why use the 7d?

Why not the FF camera? Or the D800 with megapickels and DR lattitude?

Fascinating stuff...this technology thing is really going to catch on some day.

Those are just some of the new vehicles Scotland Yard is working on.

I surmise that the cropped sensor of the 7D was used because the images accrued the optimal 40% of the lens IQ characteristics. Minimal vignetting, for one.

And Peter, as a member of the 400II club: what IQ degradation??

That was my point because it explains why you were able to enter and others have not been able to do so successfully.

Hey Rob. That is a bit of a spoiler. Giving the location away has spoilt it fro all those others enjoying the challenge of looking for it. May I suggest you remove it?

Because of the low noise produced by a 7D.

Why use a 400 f2.8 without a teleconverter? I've done these with a 400 f5.6 just fine...you want to really up the anty use a 600mm or 800mm lens, just going with higher megapixel cameras is a cop out.


So do your own 320 gigapixel pano.

Looks like an awful waste of space dedicated to the grey dull sky.

What? I thought the 400 f/2.8L II + 2xTC was better than the bare 800mm...
