further (final?) update:

i've received a new canon cable -- thanx, kolor! -- and the head can finally fire the camera. it's not entirely consistent (meaning, sometimes it doesn't work), but at least it works most times.

cheers,
pns

just a quick update... soon after my original post, a reply appeared relating a similar problem with a canon cable, but it soon disappeared...? in the absence of feedback in the forum, i've sent a couple of emails to the kolor team, explaining the situation and asking for a replacement cable. no rep...

possible problem with cable?

greetings! i'm the new owner of a panogear kit, but i cannot fire a canon camera, no matter what i try. what i've done: - the head moves (no mechanical problems) - the head fires a nikon camera (so the snap jack appears to be fine) - the canon can be fired by a regular shutter cable release (so the ...

claude, thanx for your willingness to help too. current camera is a nikon d200, but that may change in the future. what if it were, say, a nikon 5000 or 700, or a canon 7d or 5d2? is there a list of cameras truly compatible vs those that require modification of the crown/dovetail mount [1]? current ...

andrew,
thank you for your informative reply.
i have a selection of lenses, from short to long focal length, and i was hoping i wouldn't have to carry more than one head (camera, lenses, tripod and one head is bad enough). but it may not be possible, at least within a reasonable budget.
cheers,
pns

andrew, how pretty much is "pretty much"? do the systems work out of the box with "standard" dslrs (not 1d or d3 class beasts) and any lenses from fisheye thru long teles? or do the systems as sold still need replacing or shaving arms, crowns, etc? tia and cheers, pns The Panogear branded Merlin-bas...

will, thanx for your reply, which does clarify things a bit. (there was no mention of pixel resolution in the initial description, only "the sum of the 95% resolution of each tile", which seemed wrong. weighting by pixel resolution amounts to averaging, in my book, so i guess we agree). an important...

After yet another 'record' at 200+GP, which only has 112GP effective being put in it, i was reminded of a few comments made during the discussion of the first 0.1TP picture by rio-hk. The comments came from Castillonis, in which he mentioned a set of slides that came from a google talk ( http://www...

and for sure the world largest blue screen: round about 13 gigapixel allow me to add my 2 cents... when i made my own first large (at the time they seemed so, anyway) panoramas, i included very little sky, exactly because it seemed unimportant and uninteresting. as soon as i previewed the panoramas...

hi! so, what's the advantage over shooting at more "normal" apertures? if you shot at f/11 or f/16, and "oversampled" (shot many more images than usual, and rendered at 50% or even 20%), it seems that the circle of confusion would be very much reduced, and become invisible, resulting in the same vis...

nice image, imho.
i don't get the somewhat aggressive tone. the op sounded proud, but not overly so, and certainly made no claims of records (not that he would, 1.4gp wouldn't be enough for that...).
cheers,
pedro

thank you alexandre, for the update! please do tell us how it went (maybe in http://www.paris-20-gigapixels.com/ with a quick note here would make the most sense). again, i'm especially interested in how frich will use the head, how it performs, etc.

paris 20 gigapixels?

greetings! whatever happened to the paris 20 gigapixel project? i thought it should have been shot last summer, but haven't heard anything in a while. did it happen? i'd like to read details about the head and, more generally, about how the shoot went. i suppose it is not stitched yet... cheers, pns

it's been a week, no replies. do you know whether they bother to reply to english enquiries at all? They do, and they say "We don't do business outside Germany" (it may have been "in England" which is where I am). A thanx for your reply. that's odd, though! http://www.saal-digital.de/content/view/4...

are the french and english versions substantially the same, or has the english been updated?

gurl, i very much doubt that a pixel level precision tripod/head/whatever may possibly exist, but... have you looked at sachtler tripods ( http://www.sachtler.com/index.php?id=support0 )? they are meant for video, but i find them very very good (and very very expensive too!). cheers, pns
