Three billion pixels, 12 hours of shooting, and 6 months work went into this fantastic gigapixel fine art reproduction of Jesus in Krakow-Lagiewniki (Poland)- painted by Adolf Hyła in 1934.

The image was made by Peter Tumidajski and used the Gigapan Epic Pro (robotic camera mount), Autopano Giga (image stitching software), EOS 1Ds mark II, Canon 300mm 2.8 ISx 1,4 TC II, OSRAM continue light system with specialized and UV filter, Manfrotto 161Mk2 tripod, and MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM. The Gigapan Epic Pro was also used for other projects such as Machu Picchu, President Barack Obama’s Inaugural, and a 14-metre print of the centre of Leicester.

The final picture reached 3 billion pixels (real resolution is about 700DPI) thanks to 1200 shots stitched with Autopano Giga.
