At one time it was very easy to get lost in a crowd, but not anymore. If you follow the link it will take you to a photograph from the 2009 Obama Inauguration. The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera). It’s good enough to see with reasonable FOCUS the face of every individual in the crowd. It does lose definition way, way out, but you can still make out their features!!!
Here’s a section from the original image. Not worth looking at
However, if you double click an area in the picture you can bring any person closer. Or, just click the mouse and use the mouse wheel to bring them closer, just like this.
That’s the same section once I’ve zoomed in. Frightening isn’t it…..
