Bracketing is the answer. You can try, while developing your raw file to develop it with several different exposures and see if the resulting underexposed image is OK. Otherwise, as you have the possibility to shoot again: use bracketing. Autopano can handle exposure fusion; otherwise, you can use ...

Here is the pano stitched from the camera JPEG that shows the washed out area. Shot F3.5 and SS 1/2.5

Pre(or post)-autopano Advice for Bright Lights Washing Out an Area

I have successfully stitched together a pano that includes this image, but the entire ceiling section that includes this overhead light is washed out. I am wondering what some techniques you all might use pre-APP import or if you would attempt to correct it after-the-fact. I have the RAW and I will ...

I took the shots in RAW + JPEG (fine)... I definitely see the advantage of working with RAW format in Photoshop CS5 rather than allowing the camera to handle it. The "Clarity" slider directly deals with the bleeding lights (although it is imperfect because it just darkens the edges in a reverse sort...

Edit: how can I eliminate the effect of the light bleeding onto the ceiling tiles? I have been doing it in photoshop after stitching. You can´t. It´s the lens. Given you cleaned your lens properely the bleeding shows that the coating isn´t good. This results in such effects - the border between ...

Couple of thoughts: 1. use the lowest natural ISO. Some Canons are better at ISO 100 than ISO 50 (ISO 50 is an "extended" ISO). 2. you can use the selftimer instead of the remote. 2 seconds is enough if you can select the timer time. 3. there is some discussion that MLU is not needed at very long e...

Btw, taking the 6 shots with the fisheye has created a spherical pano that looks much better in the tour, particularly with a ~60 FOV. With the sub-15000 width of the fisheye panos, I will need to continue to clean up the image quality. Thanks for all the help everyone! :D I looked at your first to...

I should probably look into what mirror lock is since this is the first I am hearing of it. A DSLR - which means DigitalSingleLensReflex - has a mirror which "routes" the lightrays coming through the lens to the viewfinder-glass where you can see them as a projection. That means the lightrays dosnÂ...

I also have noticed that ISO affects the amount of noise/grain in the image, and I want to bring that down as well. Then use the lowest ISO setting available to see what effect that has on noise. Of course that will mean a lower shutter speed. But.... Some recent DSLRs display less noise with high ...

I will be back tomorrow for more learning. I am supposed to be redoing all of the shots at the end of next week. How are you deciding the manual exposure settings when shooting a pano scene? I was going off of an online article that said to set the aperture to as big as it would go, which I now kno...

Added "Force Single Row/Column" to the indoor shot.... Apparently that was the last thing necessary for a good stitching without any work. Hurrah! Some progress at last.

It was necessary for me to read the camera manual to even find all the settings. The WB is the latest thing I have been trying to manually set. I haven't yet attempted the fully manual "custom" though. I will tomorrow most likely in some of the rooms where I will be shooting. The outdoor one stitche...

I have been adding CPs (I just haven't in this case because the focus is on getting images more well-done so less CP/other editing would be necessary). The floor and ceiling tiles are very much similar. I don't understand why it is finding no links at all between different images though. I have been...

Settings use detection "low" or "standard" and check "force every image . . . ". Can you make a screenshot of the cp-window? best, KLaus btw.: better use RAW - you can edit the white-balance. The color aof the light is ugly. ;) Here are the strong, standard and low, and the CP editor. I am still wo...

I think there may be a vocabulary issue here: 1. Distortion - example is straight lines become curved They may be sharp or blurry. 2. Out of Focus, or soft focus - lines may be straight, but are blurry. At f/5 there are going to be some areas that are out of focus. If you autofocus on the center, i...

This is probably true. Should I leave the same focus setting throughout the shoot or change it based on distance from objects/walls? You should not change the focus during the shoot. Fisheye lenses have massive Depth Of Field - in other words everything from 1metre to infinity will be in focus if y...

Are these the correct image property settings for my setup?

I don't know how to manually set the aperture in APP, but I took these with 3.5.
