You’ll surely win the megapixel war with the GigaPan Epic Imager. It first saw action during President Obama’s inauguration speech with a 1,474 megapixel image composed of 220 shots. Now available for civilian use, the Epic Imager is basically a robotic camera mount that automatically takes pictures at your desired increments. Coupled with a clever photostitching software, your shots are arranged accordingly. Attach any point-and-shoot camera and pop in some batteries and you’ll handsomely beat any top-shelf DSLR because you’re not shooting in megapixels but in gigapixels! After stitching the photos, the GigaPan website will gladly display your panoramic shots for all the world to enjoy. $380.
