    A friend of mine sent me the link for this. The photo (1 single photo)
    measures 28 feet by 108 feet. The camera they used to take this shot was an
    aircraft hanger. It has been certified by Guinness as the worlds largest
    photograph.

  2. Hmmmm. The horizon's tilted, and the bokeh's lousy.

    Is it or are they the only people to apply for that title?

    Can't say. I never even heard of this until a friend past on the link. I
    would imagine that if someone else had done something like this that they
    would have went for the record. Otherwise really what's the point? Sure it
    is fascinating, but I doubt you see the market being flooded with the Nikon
    and Canon Aircraft Hanger cameras.

    I think the longest picture is an aerial photograph using a scanning
    camera and continuous film, which may also be the biggest picture.

    I think not. Yes, the CIA and USAF used large format roll film and a
    panning/pivoting head and slit-shutter (in stereo, too) fifty years ago,
    but one long image has no practical advantage. It is more efficient to
    make such images in a digital manner.

    [re world's largest photograph]
    The World's Largest things are all that way. I had a taste of the world's
    largest cookie, and it was stale.

    You should have tried the worlds largest beer. Not only was it stale it had
    an Irishman floating in it.
