This is done with a product called GIGAPAN
It is about 5 years old technology, but had now only just made one for DSLR cameras.
The main problem that they had was to push the aperture right open to make no DoF depth of field.
Was only compatible with Canon G-series cameras, but for any photographer $300-800 usd would be a lot of fun

I'm glad someone else is familiar with this "technology". It's nothing new and I've known of Gigapan since they started selling the machines. Like I said in an earlier post in this thread, it boggles my mind as to what most people think took these photos.
The OP really should update the thread with your input as to not cause any more "big brother" histeria relating to panorama photography. Also, this technology IS in space. The Hubble does the same thing by taking a bunch of pictures and then stitching them together. Other satellites can't do this because it requires staying still, otherwise the composition would be all eff'd up and full of "anomalies" for you to pick at.edit on 20-5-2011 by grrrrt because: (no reason given)
