highwave: Nokia has this small Phone with a 41 MP camera
So just some calculation for fun:
To achieve 50 Gigapixels using pureview Nokia phones you would need about 1220 of them.
that would be about 73 meters (240 feet) wide and 146 meters (480 feet) high of Nokia Phones duct taped together.
That's about as wide as the empire state building and about one third as high.
I don't think I would want to take up the job of wiring them up for remote shutter release and then go grab the shots from each phone.
Oh for those still waiting for me to type down the relevance of the OP to the thread, I couldn't figure anything out.
How did you arrive at those numbers?! Surely somewhere along the line you would think that that size was massive! By my quick calculation, you could get something like 1.4 million Nokia 808s in that space.
