Re: Not stitching rows in a panorama [SOLVED]

I have spent a few hours to read all your discussions, did some calculations and came to the following conclusion: the Orion head is not recommendable for giga panos, as the precission and speed is not comparable with a professional head. You can do it by accepting a lot of shortcommings like very l...

The Handheld Controll will control the Panoneed too. It is the same hardware, but as the Panoneed program needs another memory structure than the Orion/merlin, so the memory structure had to be changed. By this change, the flash loader must be at a different position in memory. So the controller mus...

Many thanks for starting this discussion. I was never told by Kolor that the xml structure was modifyed. They use it now for more than 3 years and it works. After your discussion I looked closer to the version a, b, c. Most of the header is only an information for the user what kind of file he has a...

Hallo Andrew, please read my answer to Felix about the zenit shoot and sphares. The T&C makes for each session an xml file, which has the exact position of each image. So the stitcher doesn't need common parts in the overlapping pictures to position them, it uses the xml information when it doesn't ...

I wonder with how much entusiusm everybody is discussing this subject. As I mentioned, the maximum down angle for the Panogear is 70°, so the maximum vertical angle is 160°. If the diagonal value is 168° for the 10mm lens, then the vertical angle must be 139° (rule of Phytagoras and your sensor size...

Hallo FelixAutopano, if the head would start down 10°, then it would leave 139°/2 - 10° = 59,5° above the horizontal level. The minimum angle for the zenit shoot is 93°/2 = 46,5° so the overlapping would be 59,5°+46,5°-90°=16°. 16 degree compared to 90° for 100% are 17%. So the overlapping between t...

Hallo FelixAutopano, I try to give you some answers. 1. The down angle of the Panogear is 70°, so the maximum vertical angle is 90°+70°=160° and the Nadir hole 40°. If you want more, you make multible pictures of the Panogear base without information. If you really want smaller Nadir holes, you must...

To work with presets is very easy from the point of software developing for a controller, if something is wrong in the stitch, then it is the user's blame not the controllers. The controller has not to make calculations, it is just positioning the head to the preset coordinates. The controller is no...

I hope that I can clarify the discussion. The TC uses a maximum down angle of 75 degree, as the footprint of the Orion/Merlin head has this size. For all lenses and camera combinations the TC calculates down angles, only for Fisheye in portrait mode I put 0 degree in as the calculations showed, that...

Hallo gddxb, your calculations are correct. It means, that you get instead of a detail in the size of 1 pixel 1.75 pixel. This is reducing your horizontal resolution of your camera from 4896 pixel/1.75 to an equivalent of 2797 pixel. You must decide if that is o.k. for your work.

Hi Saulius, the Touch Control stores the camera and lenssettings in the internal memory. These are no xml data, as xml data are only x and y angle and bracketting informations, which are used by the stitcher. When you select Panorama, Angle mode or Mosaik mode, the lens and camera data are used to c...

The 4Nm are appr. 0.4kg on a lever of 1meter, as 1kg is 9,81N. The torque should be meassured after the gearbox, as this is what you really get. So the motor torque must be multiplied by the gearbox ratio and reduced by the loss of friction you have in the gearbox. The friction depends on the kind o...

With a fisheye with 180 degree diagonal you get in portrait orientation vertical 149 degree and horizontal 99 degree and in Landscape just opposit. If you select 0% overlapping you can get 360/99=3.6pictures -> 4 pictures plus 1 zenit. With 10% overlapping, the 99 degree are reduced to 89 degree. Fo...

By accident I found your discussion subject. You are all right in some way. I analysed the speed at different voltages (9.6V 12V and 15V) and found if the controller (Nokia or T&C) uses the GOTO command to position the head there will be no speed difference related to the voltage. I assume that the ...
