Nope not one shot, it works on a special stand and device with a expensive dslr taking shots in a grid like pattern the camera takes one shot of place on the grid with the highest res then moves onto the next box in the grid until it covers the whole area, it then it sort of glues the areas together to create one large high res picture.
These take under a day to several days to do, those people your see are not all there on the same day, its best to do images like that in a still landscape and not with alot of moving objects or you get like people without legs or body parts that double in the image.

A good example is this one

zoom in on the cars at the left of the image and you will see how they are missing parts

There are camera's that can take gigapixel shots but only used for government or space

The Obama image was taken by this guy
http://www.davidbergman.net/blog/how-i-made-a-1474-megapixel-photo-during-president-obamas-inaugural-address/

"I made a panoramic image showing the nearly two million people who watched President Obama’s inaugural address. To do so, I clamped a Gigapan Imager to the railing on the north media platform about six feet from my photo position. The Gigapan is a robotic camera mount that allows me to take multiple images and stitch them together, creating a massive image file."

There are also some cameras that take panoramic images if you sweep the camera horizontally or vertically.

All this time and set up and trying to capture the moment in time like a frozen memory or historical moment...

BUT a simple porn movie will always beat this shit. Just one goat ...
