Canon EOS-7D and EF 100-400mm break record

Two of my favorite pieces of Canon equipment are at it again. The Canon EOS-7D (my pick for best value DSLR) and the EF 100-400mm (my pick for best value wildlife zoom) lens were used to create the highest pixel panorama photo of Machu Picchu, the United Nation's World Heritage site in Peru.

You may recall last month, the Canon EOS-7D camera and EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II lens were also used to create a 320 GB panorama photo of London, England. You can also visit my website to see photos taken with the same Canon equipment.

Jeff Cremer from Rainforest Expedition visited Peru’s Machu Picchu last year and took almost 2,000 photos using a Canon EOS-7D and a EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS lens. The whole process lasted almost two hours. The images were stitched together and the overall exercise required one and a half hour. The resulting image has a size of 297,500 x 87,500 pixels and a resolution of 16 Gigapixels. You can see the image and read about how it was done.
