^^ what they said.
Also, just for information in case some are not aware,
these giga-pan images, or google streetview, or any of the billion pixel images, etc.. are not single images. They are a collage of individual images
that are stitched together. There are no gigapixel cameras.
There was a gigapixel image of London, and I remember people playing a sort of game, finding people cut in half or busses that turned into trucks mid
So as the camera takes multiple images (multiple cameras also) they're not all taken at the same time usually, so you'll get people walking through
a scene, or moving traffic..
But I've seen a lot of people think that someone just points a camera, clicks, uploads to the internet and viola - instant panoramic zoomable image!
