You can even count the tents in Base Camp. Extrordinary photo.


Pretty awesome exposure and great stitch. I looked into a gigapan rig for a job, unfortunately didn't pan out but would be a sweet toy to add to the arsenal.

These guys know their stuff, working with programming to account for exposure changes over time down to the 1000th of a second to keep an even exposure over the whole image. Some of these gigapans are thousands of images stitched, pretty wild stuff.
