Photosynth by Microsoft

Photosynth is a powerful set of tools for capturing and viewing the world in 3D. You can share your creations with your friends on Facebook, publish them to Bing, or embed them in your own blog or Web site. This is a free tool created for taking 2D images and transporting to 3D viewing.

These a just a few I thought were interesting because you can zoom in/out and rotate the images:
