Autopano pretty much solidified my abandonment of film. I actually thought long and hard about getting rid of the medium and large format cameras I'd been using figuring 13 megapixels still wouldn't cut it for very large prints. I think that digital far surpasses 35 film one frame at a time, and I h...

Fabulous! Puts Scheimpflug to shame! Makes me feel really good about selling my view camera.

try typing "99 euros in dollars" directly into google - it'll do the conversion for you! (without the quotes)

I just paid with my credit card - it converted to be about $118 but ultimately you do need to pay in Euros. You will get the prevailing rate with whatever fees your card adds on.

Does the 1.2 beta mean a Mac version too? Or just windows?

I've had Ficus trees (Ficus Benjamina to be specific) which are commonly used as hedges in florida. I did not know they were fig trees. And I've also had a fig "tree" (plant) that actually grew figs at a rented house on long island. Neither looked anything like that tree in the photo. Does that tree...

I too would love to try the mac beta, bugs and all. I'd even register it and pay for the software knowing I could upgrade to the 1.2 free based on the stated policy of upgrades.

Thanks! I'm trying to not be impatient - I'm sure it will be impressive! I'm itching to render a few panos I shot in Florida and unfortunately they just don't run well under Virtual PC. So hopefully end of next week we'll be up and running.

Any word on Mac version

I have a bunch of Panos to render from florida - I don't want to buy the PC version if a Mac version is coming out soon. Any word on when? Thanks.

Light Sturdy Tripod?

Hello all. Just got back from Florida lugging my 3001 tripod with a 3030 head (Bogen) and boy is my arm tired! I originally bought it for large format photography. I was looking at some of the carbon fiber tripods with 4 leg segments. They are quite expensive. Anyine have any luck with the DynaTran ...

Yes, I agree that the "straightness" of the buildings looks a little unnatural. I find that when perspective correcting, if you make it "perfect" along the grid lines it actually looks as if the top of the building is wider. I think the human brain expects a little bit of convergence to look natural...

Aperture runs pretty well on my 2.5 gHz Dual G5, but I can still detect a lot of slowness sometimes. I heard it relies heavily on the GPU, I have one that does not support the 30 inch so it's a little outdated. They HAD to make it run on powerbooks since that is what people use in the field, but wit...

So I went with the 24 2.8 Canon lens. It was only a bit more than the 28 2.8 and I wanted it right away to bring with me on vacation. Let's see how it produces - I'll post some examples when I get back.

I know. I've been generating panos with virtual PC but only with the demo mode so I get the watermark. Also painfully slow (but quite stable I might add, virtual PC must be a very "standard" well behaved PC). I just got the 24mm 2.8 EF lens for my 5D and last night calculated where the nodal point i...

In regards to the panosaurus I'm not too overly concerned about the degree markings or lack of detents. I err on the side of too much overlap anyway - it's not like I'm doing metered fisheye panos. The thing I notice is the camera really is held up tall and since my 5D is quite heavy you really need...

Does anyone have a comment about HOW Aperture processes RAW. I guess I never gave it much thought.

I'm sure aperture has its flaws but it's not all bad. First when you import and then process a RAW you can always very easily select the photos you want to export and it will export them in many different formats automatically taking into account all the changes that you have made ('export version')...

I like the fact that most of the shots aren't actually pano's. You are just using the software to grow in format. That was my original intent too. Will probably sell all the 4 x 5 stuff and now actually probably the mamiya 7 as well.

Now I realize what's wrong. Safari squished the pano like a cinemascope movie. When I drag it into another piece of software it looks normal.

Why do the clouds at the top look stretched? Is it a factor in the software or choice of projection. Either way a beautiful pano

Ahh.. you are right about the random selection of photos - I did not see those. I think the photo of the Westin looks pretty straight. The green house may see a little barrel along the top. Shouldn't the software help correct for that, especially once it can work with fisheye shots?

Which shot had barrel distortion? I think those were using a small frame sensor digital camera. The bricks in the first shot look pretty good.
