I need to get a sacrificial wired remote for my 450D and take it apart to see just exactly how it works, and how I might rig it to operate 2 cameras at the same time. That or see if someone has documented how it works. I'm hoping it is just a simple contact closure for each of 2 contacts (half pres...

The square size makes one think its not a panorama - put the exif says stitched, so you ran it through APP. The placement of the car in the frame, and the slight blur on its nose makes it look in motion. It's neat.

BTW, did you get to burningman this year?

The closest thing to open source firmware is CHDK. It is a community who have hacked the Canon firmware for non slrs. I have not used it, as I have a Nikon, but a friend uses it for 3d photography with great success. There are people working on Dslr, so in time...

Also be aware that when using smartblend into a layered file, that the blended background layer may be different than the single image layers. Smartblend does this distortion as part of it's blending process. In this case try multiband, or some cloning. I find it is particularly obvious with horizon...

I have had an interest in KAP since seeing the famous pictures of San Francisco . A month or two ago, I was very excited to see a man with a blimp on the street by my house, taking photos. Unfortunately he was not very helpful, as he was not interested in KAP, just making money from real estate phot...

Odyssy - thanks for the detailed post. I have been wanting to get involved with a robotic head for a while, and now will take the plunge. Given that I haven't found any good sources in the Southern Hemisphere, I will probably have a friend in the States repackage and ship to me. There is not a lot o...

While I don't understand French in any form, I do appreciate posts in French. First, even if I look at the pictures, I am being exposed to ideas that I would not otherwise. Having the bilingual posts where some of the conversation is in English is all that much better, especially considering that th...

I think Alexandre is already headed that way in the Autopano 2. See Section 3. MOTORIZED PANOHEAD SUPPORT

Thank you so much for posting this. It was great to read the descriptions, and then scroll down for the images. The moonlight is amazing. I must try it. I might even shoot a panorama at first.

Since we have so easily defined panorama, we can move on to deciding what is a good one ;) I read once that a good stitched panorama should have 1/3 of the original images be visually interesting by themselves. The rest of the panorama helps link the interesting images and completes the mood or stor...

Thanks Aeriscera for starting this thread. On one hand it is a bit strange to be debating the meaning of "panorama", but on the other hand useful to see how other people see it, and force myself to look at how I use the term. First, I went to my favorite book on such things, the Focal Encyclopedia o...

Welcome to the community, Damo. This software is great in part because of this forum. I have never seen a flame here in a couple of years of following along. I stumbled in from a link on the autostich website, and have been using it ever since. Please realize that Autopano is simple on one level, bu...

What a great idea! It's a bit of a commute, or I'd try to be there. I've been toying with making a scanner based camera, and could use some inspiration. Any ideas on how to find tool making nutcases in my part of the world?

Though it still has a couple of errors, I can't help but add my picture to the September 2006 Coit Tower gallery...

I shot two rows, handheld, around the tower. I didn't think it would work at all.

Lightroom has a maximum pixel limit of 10,000, so larger panos will not load. (See http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t12584.html ) I am not sure about file size in MB, but suspect that it is not the issue. In order to use Lightroom's library functions, I am making smaller "th...
