Attendees Can Find Themselves In Getty’s Pics Of The Opening Ceremony

The photography agency has created a 20 gigapixel image that will allow viewers to zoom in on their own faces in the crowd.

PSFK Coverage Of The 2012 London Olympics

Using two Nikon D800s, one remotely controlled by a robotic camera mount, Getty Images captured a 20 gigapixel shot of the Opening Ceremony, meaning all 70,000 people in attendance will be able to clearly zoom in on their face. Fujitsu will stitch and edit the images together to create the giant picture.

This is yet another great example of how technology is a core theme of this year’s olympics. A final important detail is that the attendees will be able to look at the photograph and tag themselves.
