I dream about being able to afford 22 megapixel medium format backs. I think that it would be great to be able to capture that much detail with one click of the shutter. Heck, I’d love to be able to afford a Canon 1Ds. However, for most amateur photographers that type of hardware is out of reach. But, with a little bit of practice, you can get some of the same eye popping detail using much more modest equipment. The answer is to take multiple exposures and stitch them together using software that costs as much as a somewhat nice dinner.
