Zooming into the details will no decrease the quality of such images. Now the cameras capable of creating a Gigapixel image in a single shot are very less in number. But there is a lot of cameras capable of creating Gigapixel image by joining several pictures taken separately
Developments in the area of a Gigapixel camera was started only in 2000. In the same year 4 gigapixel camera was made by a group of scientists, but these cameras produced images by joining different segments taken separately. Currently there are cameras capable of capturing gigapixel images in single shot. Also the capacity of photos produced by joining segments increased.
