Mont Blanc Panorama Is World’s Largest Photograph

Photo zoomed all the way out
An international team led by Italian photographer Filippo Blengini used a Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 II IS, a Canon 70D DSLR and a Canon Extender 2X III on a special robotic mount to capture 70,000 photographs of Mont Blanc in every direction over 35 hours of shooting. The resulting image would be as large as a football pitch if printed out at 300dpi.

Check out the interactive viewer on the project’s website.

Zooming in shows everything from an eagle in the far distance to the construction site of a futuristic cable car station.
