Re: Is Kolor still making/selling the Panogear head?

Finally decided to pony up and buy a Gigapan when they first came out and offered a discount to testers. Was amazed that the design could only accommodate a very limited type of camera (excluding mine) for the price and that I would have to buy a compatible camera to participate. Was even more amaze...

Re: Missing images within stitched pano

What I do is set the option to use every picture option. The shots which the program cannot locate usually end up in a (virtual) heap in one corner. Go into 'move images' mode and set the grid on. You will then see the location and number of each picture. Drag the unplaced pictures into position and...

Re: Bug or what ?

Looks like there may be too many shots in that middle row, have you tried removing some?

If you have not already done so, can you post links to the original shots so others can try stitching them.

Re: Seemingly Impossible panorama?

Not tried it yet, but my first thought on looking at the files is that perhaps there are too many?

I have found that going into 'move image' mode then removing some of the files will sometimes sort out a pano which is misbehaving.

Also reduces the amount of memory required, which speeds things up.

Re: Really struggling

Best to stick the pics on Photobucket (or similar website) then post the links here so that others can see them.

Re: APP for single image manipulation?

The only thing I can think of is to use mesh warp in Corel Paint to adjust the centre then crop to remove the top & bottom (which stay straight).

Re: Mirrorless Cameras... Are they any good....??

Don't see why they should be any worse than SLRs. The main advantage of the traditional SLR was that you could see what you were shooting, no matter what combination of lens/ zoom you were using. Now that the image from the sensor is available electronically, it can be displayed either in the viewfi...

Re: Help for a beginner

Don't see why you can't use one of these - just screw straight onto your tripod & let you move the camera back and forward. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-way-Macro-Shot-Focus-Rail-Slider-LP-01-long-type-Tripod-head-for-Canon-Nikon-/350631338122?pt=UK_Tripods_Heads_Stablisers&hash=item51a341a08...

Of course. if you only want to use a small, light camera in sheltered conditions, LEGO alone is sufficient.

Re: DIY motorised pano heads

When I first started to build my own pano head I wanted to use aluminium but did not know how to weld it and distrusted adhesives. Had I known about this stuff I would probably have used it!

Re: DIY motorised pano heads

Still suffering from insomnia, so some more random thoughts, this time on operating the camera. As usual, these are my opinions and are not guaranteed to be accurate or even thunk by a being from your own planet. Once I had the mechanism pointing the camera in the right direction, I had to focus it ...

Re: DIY motorised pano heads

Thoughts on mounting a pano head. When I started doing panos I found that I tended to end up with curved horizons because the vertical axis of the tripod was not level. I wanted to get a tribrach similar to that used in surveying levels and theodolites but these were far too expensive. Yes, a I am a...

Re: DIY motorised pano heads

Since the rig is running my program, I can change it to do just about anything. The NXT can (within memory limitations) store multiple programs so you can have different programs to suit different types of pano if you want. It currently allows the use of manual or auto focus, mirror lockup, etc. The...

Re: How to stitch panos with blue skies in Autopano ?

I go into 'move' mode and align the shots with the grid using the picture number to see where each should go.

Sounds complicated but easy when you try it.
