Bentley has captured what they’re calling “the world’s most detailed landscape photo”: a 57.7 gigapixel interactive image stitched together from 1,825 individual frames delivering mind-boggling detail. The images were captured from atop one of the tallest towers in Dubai with a lone Bentley Flying Spur W12 S sitting on the waterfront.
This isn’t the first time Bentley has experimented with NASA technology and gigapixel photography. Their first interactive ad, captured in San Francisco, featured a 53-gigapixel photo that let you zoom all the way into the stitching on a car seat that was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge.
The NASA-derived gigapixel camera system was suspended 264 metres up the Cayan Tower, where it had to contend with “40-degree heat that created a haze and 25 km/h winds that threatened to disrupt stability.”
All of the source images took 48 hours to capture and downloading the final stitched photograph took 18 hours resulting in hours of fun for car, photography and travel nerds!
