Learning to handle featureless foregorunds and blue skies...

I am attempting to learn how to handle multi-row mosaics with relatively featureless foregrounds, clear blue skies and tricky lighting. This pano contains all three. Shot around 4pm with the sun low in the West. Shot with Nikon P5100 compact digital at 2MP per image with WC-E68 wide convertor (0.68x...

Ninon P5100 with WC-E68 convertor

Just for fun - Nikon P5100 (small digital compact with 12MP sensor) with WC-E68 wide convertor attached via UR-E20 and UR-E7 adapters. Shot in one row, portrait orientation, on Progammed auto, auto WB, and Distant focus range, and at 2MP Fine setting, with Nodal Ninja 5 pano head with T-30 adapter w...

The main point: lot of peoples use Nikon APS-C cameras, Nikon 10.5 mm fisheye and NN3 and are happy with them. For any problem between NN5 and this 10.5 mm fisheye you should scan www.panoguide.com but I highly doubt Nickfan (NNx maker) would launch a pano-head which don't work well with the most a...

When one is enjoying the great landscape visible from this place he is very happy if he carries binoculars (I often do and everybody want to borrow them) : this corresponds to several gigapixels and zoomify. Although I've never (yet) made a mosaic pano - your description corresponds well with my fe...

I did -thanks for very detailed answer.

Looks like the K10D is a good choice esp. because it can bracket from -2EV to +2EV in just 3 steps - most other DSLRs at this price cannot do that AFAIK. I'm envious.

Which pano head are you planning to use with thiis camera?

I'm interested to learn why you chose the 4/3 system Pentax K10D.

What lens are you planning to use with it for pano photography?

Live View on DSLRs

More and more new DSLRs seem to be offering a Live View mode - and one or two also have tilt/swivel LCds - although the implementation of these features is far from being standardised between/among manufactueres. Do you think Live View - and/or tilt/swivel LCDs - on DSLRs offers significant advantag...

I like the London Eye pano a lot.

What camera and head do you use? How long were the exposures?

Here's the response I got from Hans Nyberg on Panoguide - it may be of interest to others: "To avoid interference from the rotator or bottom rail you just shoot the 6 around at -10 or 12 degrees. This means you just shoot 6 around + the zenith. There is still enough overlap for the zenith image and ...

GURL, Thanks so much for that info. And for the sample cube face image. What is the diagonal FOV of your 16mm fullframe fisheye on your camera? That is an Olympus E330 with a 4/3 if I recall correctly from your pother posts, so I'm not sure how results with the NN3 (or NN5)would compare with the 1.6...

Anyone using Nodal Ninja 3 or 5 with a fisheye lens?

I am still trying to decide which pano head to buy to use with my Nikon D40 and Nikkor 10.5 fisheye. I am attracted to the new Nodal Ninja 5 Lite on basis of features and price but I have been unable to find sets of sample images taken using the Nodal Ninja 3, or the new 5, with any sort of fisheye ...

Software already exists to make a pano from video, it's been out for a few years now. http://www.snapdv.com/screen.php But according to the web site no longer available for sale - I was quite interested. I have several Sony and Canon PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) video caeras and was pondering whether one co...

Forget about bracketing among crowd. I feel "welcomed" as I go with light equipment: Canon G9 on monopod. If I had a big D-SLR on tripod and 3D head, asking people to go away or stop, I wouldn't see many smiles. . If you have not seen it I think you may find this article by Luca Vascon interesting ...

Yes, panos shot with fisheyes are destined for Web viewing and have sufficient resolution for that - so fit for purpose. And yes, I can see those fine photo art commercial applications for very high res. mosaics panos but it seems there is also a strong body of what may be termed hobbyists making th...

So you would advocate doing this correction on each image before stitching rather than after on the rendered pano? I could use Capture NX on Nikon RAW (NEF) images to same effect - in fact Capture NX also offers D-Lighting as a software feature but there seems to be some controversy about whther thi...

Why shoot and stitch panos with many many images?

I am a novice in the pano 'game' and my main interest at the moment is to acquire the hardware and software and skills to be able to create 360VR panos that are of sufficient quality to display full screen in a browser. As far as I can make out people doing this try and shoot as few images as possib...

Active D-Lighting ?

Nikon have announced the D60 which many have initially dismissed as merely a D40X, which it replaces, with a new name and an increased price - but it does have amongst a few new features what they call Active D-Lighting - first seen as a hardware/firmware implementation on the D300 I believe - descr...

I need advice on choosing a pano head for use with the Nikon 10.5mm fullframe fisheye lens to create both 360x180 (6 shots around and one up plus ,optionally, one/two down) and cylindrical panos (no up/down shots).

Nice pano - I had no problem viewing large flash version with IE7 and WinXP on P4 2.8GHz with 1.5GB RAM.

What camera and lense did you use to shoot the pix?

Thanks for the tips. All images were shot 1/60 at F2.8. White balance set manually and fixed. Focus set manually and fixed. ISO set manually and fixed. Flash should vary output by measuring reflected light and I think it does but I guess there are limits - given that then flash is being bounced side...
