Just had this from a mate, apologies if you've seen it before, I found it quite impressive.

This is a photograph of 2009 Obama Inauguration. You can see IN FOCUS the face of EACH individual in the crowd !!!
You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd. . . wait a few seconds. . . and the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up.
The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera). Every one attending could be scanned after the event, should something have gone wrong during it.

Dont quite see how useful it would be as a lot of people have their faces covered as it was so cold. Thanks for posting though it is an interesting shot!
