Philosophical Library
Image by Jeffrey Martin, www.360cities.net

The world's largest photo to be taken indoors is of the ancient Philosophical Library at Strahov Monastery in Prague and it's made up of 40 billion pixels.

The image is made up of 2947 individual photos that were shot by Jeffrey Martin over 5 days then stitched together into one epic image. If you wanted to hang the photo on your wall you'd need a space that fits a print that's 23 meters long and 12 meters tall.

If you'd like to have a look at the image and zoom in to see the detail found on the edges of the books that fill the shelves of the library visit 360cities.

I struggled to find another word than awesome ... but failed, so I'll also just have to say Awesome!

Now imagine a day when your everyday phone camera has gigapixel resolution ... I dare anyone to claim that'll never happen. Never is a long time.

Huh - they've already got those cameras in the US CSI depts haven't they? Y'know the one's that tell the 'tecs a perp's medical history from the cellular structure in their nasal hairs?

They're also very cleverly disguised just to look like normal D40s.
