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

I literally can't stand to use an optical view finder anymore. The Fuji X-E2 EVF is very good, the new fuji X-T1 is even better. In 2 generations time, the EVF I think should exceed even the most diehard OVF fans expectations (whether they admit it or not is another issue haha). Also Klaus, with reg...

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

I own several mirrorless cams and find them to be superior to DSLR for panos. I own a Sony NEX-7 and Fuji X-E2. Benefits of these cameras are: - same / similar APS-C sensors that are in most crop DSLR's - live view screens are better than most DLSR's with good refresh rate. The sony is tiltable whic...

Re: Samyang 8mm plus 14mm vs. 10-24 zoom?

I have the 8mm and it is a great lens. I also have the 14mm which as you know is also a great lens. There will be a significant difference in the number of images required to stitch a rectilinear 10mm image from the 10-24 or with the 14mm vs an 8mm fish eye. So for shooting 360 degree spherical pano...

Thanks for the reply Klaus and Georg, Klaus, I had forgotten that Kolor do offer some services in this regard. Thank you for reminding me. I was considering contacting them anyway. This confirms I should do so. Georg, I had read that post and see that Hans mentions he uses cloud service / render far...

50+ Gigapixel Stitching and Cloud Computing

Hi all, a colleague and I are looking at trying to create a gigapixel panorama of 50 gigapixels or more. There is a real lack of large images of Australia. We are in the processing of negotiating access to a prominent building in Sydney to shoot the panorama from. We have had some positive indicatio...

Another reprocessed Gigapan - Sugar Pine Forest at Sunrise

A 360 degree Gigapan from a place called the Sugar Pine Forest, about 5 hours south of Sydney. Shot on the Canon 7D, Canon 10-22mm and Gigapan Epic Pro. Quite technically challenging to stitch. I bracketed the shots but didn't put enough EV gap between the images. This is a processed version of the ...

Old Gigapan - Redone

From early 2011. Decided to reprocess the RAW files, restitch and re-edit. I love the B+W version. Here is the colour image displayed via the Gigapan website. Only 210 megapixies but I like it! I need to come up with a concept and shoot a gigapixel image for the Epson Pano Awards by July 14th... Gig...

Sydney in 2013

It has been a while since I have posted any panoramas so I thought I had better put a few images up :) To be honest I have been stepping back from shooting large numbers of images and focussing more on long exposure and some stacking techniques to replicate very long exposures so these images are no...

Noise reduction through stacking requires no specialised algorithm. As Michael mentioned, it should occur simply by averaging out the random noise (i.e. linear image blending). I did some experimenting quickly with APG but could never get the image to look as it does when stacked in photoshop. I use...

The concept of a local renderfarm is interesting to me but I agree with Klaus, I doubt there is a strong commercial driver for it. I use engineering software for sewer modelling and flood modelling. It now has a simulation server that splits single simulations across multiple PC's on LAN. If graphic...

Hi Christian and Ed, greatlly appreciate your feedback. I have to admit to having been very busy working this month and I've been sloppy with the fine details of my shots. Its funny how aspect ratios work. The star photo I shot in portrait orientation. When I cropped it, I had to use a ratio of 3.5:...

I have done a star shot before using Autopano. I was curious to see how this one would work out though as I shot it relatively poorly.

Panos from Australia - October November 2012

Some more stitched panos from Oz from October and November 2012. Have been trying out a Fuji X-Pro1 so a few have been shot with that camera. I have been working in a rural area as well so a couple of Rural scenes too. I hope you enjoy my work. Regards Ian A view of Sydney http://farm9.staticflickr....

Looks like a good idea Leifs. I might have to re-evaluate the OM-D, the Nex-7 is amazing at ISO100 but does have some things that seriously annoy me. Thanks for all of your info.

Tived, I use a Sony Nex-5N and Sony Nex-7 for pano shooting. I am not shooting gigapixel, only 100-200 MP usually. The Sonys are hugely annoying in there bracketing modes are limited to +/- 0.7 EV. But the dynamic range of the Nex-7 is far better than my Canon 7D and it has good 24MP resolution. So ...

I always decode my raw files in Adobe Camera Raw and I find the results are always superior to stitching from JPEG. If I want a really high quality output, I convert to 16 bit TIFF files. This also allows me to control white balance to get the look I want and control the exposure as I want it prior ...
