2012 London Olympics are about to start and their official photo agency is Getty Images. The giant photo agency that is also one of the biggest actor in the field of sports photogaphy. Getty is going to capture the 2012 Olympic games with the very latest technologies of today’s digital imaging and I think that this is going to change the way we leave the event, both in front of our HDTVs, on sports newspapers and on the web. They have planed to offer us time lapse video, 360° images with super high definition to let viewers zoom-in and even tag persons on Facebook, 3D of course and a lot of aerial shots and footages with robotic cameras and octocopter drones.

In the following video, you will have a preview of the kind of high-tech images to expect for the Olypmpics and more information on the gigantic settup Getty has organized for this world wide event. See how they capture 3D stills using a pair of Nikon D4.
