January 23 2010


Check out the image below by the guy (Trey Ratcliff) running Stuckincustoms.com, scroll down the page until you see it, the site is updated daily.  This original shot is 12000×8174 or equivalent to
about 98MP, and had to be downsized to be loaded on to flickr 13.5mb!  Originally it was 16,000 pixels wide, 984mb TIFF, or 124mb JPEG.  It gives you a good idea about what the future will yield in resolution.  Now I’m not a huge fan of HDR, but I find this image interesting none-the-less. I don’t know how it was pieced together, but he did a good job.  For some reason I notice some massive color fringing along the sides, where you’re not supposed to look—right?  I think the camera used was the Nikon D3X and 14-24mm lens.

As I said, I’m not real big on HDR, though Trey has some great shots to offer and keeps me interested. I like his general outlook, adventure chronicles, innovation, and the latest website gadgets, something I desperately lack.  Speaking of innovation, check out this really cool video he shot on a digital camera with 300fps.
