London’s skyline has been captured in what’s been billed as the world’s first Gigapixel time-lapse panorama
The view, dubbed 24 Hour London, is made up of more than 6,240 photos taken over the course of a full day and night across a 155 degree view.
It was shot from the 770ft-high roof of Cesar Pelli’s One Canada Square in Canary Wharf.
A seamless view of the capital was produced by using pre-programmed robotic motion-control technology – which has been used on big budget films such as the 2013 science fiction thriller Gravity - to repeat the same pattern of photos 260 times an hour with pinpoint accuracy.
The finished product is 7.3 Gigapixels (7,300 Megapixels or 7bn pixels), which is over 1000 times more powerful than the camera on an iPhone X.
The project is the result of a collaboration between Lenstore, Nikon and Visualise.
