HOW WE CREATE PHOTOS WITH RECORD-SETTING RESOLUTIONS
VAST photos are created by seamlessly stitching together many individual images of a scene. Each individual image is only a small section of the scene and a few dozen megapixels. However, after all the images are compiled together, the result is a photo of the entire scene with a resolution that can be thousands of megapixels.
Refined over years of practice and experimentation, we have perfected every step of the process:
- We begin
This is similar to your phone camera's "panorama mode"
However, phone cameras use lenses that have very wide angles of view and thus only require a few images (taken while you're panning your phone) to capture an entire scene. On the other hand, we use lenses that can be more than 10 times as zoomed in. This means that a panorama photo that would have required your phone to take 3 images, requires us to take 300. And, as you can imagine, 300 50-megapixel images from a very high-end professional DSLR camera results in a dramatically more impressive photo than 3 8-megapixel images from a poor-quality phone camera.
