At times I have my Acer 10.1 inch netbook with me, but I have never tried to stitch a panorama in the field. Though, I have downloaded the images to the netbook to examine the quality on a screen a few times. The most likely flaw I will make is poor focus. In fact I had a panorama that I captured th...

The autopano documentation discusses vignetting in the Color and Brightness section, but I do not know if the software corrects specifically for vignetting. If you use the Adobe Bridge to open you photographs for a panorama in Adobe RAW, you are able to make a correction for vignetting in the lens c...

I just received my new Promote systems exposure bracketing controller. I successfully triggered the Promote with the imager by plugging in to the third port ( accessory port ) using a mini plug. Now I can use this to do exposure bracketing during the day with shutter speeds of up to 1/4000s. I can a...

I have been retouching large panoramas by slicing them with the Gigatiler application with a size of 10k x 10k. My dilemma was how to assemble them. ImageMagick has the montage command, but I don't think it will be able to handle large images. I don't really have time to develop an application to do...

Intéressant panoramas. J'ai essayé d'en savoir plus sur l'art créé par Tatin, mais je n'avais la difficulté à  comprendre tout ce que j'ai traduit avec des outils linguistiques de Google.

There is a video that shows the apparatus that they constructed to photograph the tree with linear movements. A second video will be played about photographing an Owl, if you wait. Good to read that they used Autopano Giga :) http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/video/player#/?titleID=nichols-redwoods-...

Smith Rock ( rock climbing )

Here is another scene from Smith Rocks state park located at Terrebone, Oregon, US. I captured this panorama with a 50mm lens using the camera's autoexposure bracketing feature at sunset. I wish I had ordered the Promote exposure bracketing device a few days earlier as it would have been useful for ...

Cool. Avez-vous pris un panorama du musée du Louvre à  partir d'un emplacement plus proche? Si vous avez des fichiers Camera Raw, je me demande ce que cela pourrait ressembler si vous avez modifié l'équilibre des blancs pour environ 2900 degrés Kelvin. Sont ces lumières basse pression de vapeur de s...

I just purchased a Promote with Nikon and Canon cables. The Promote has a mini plug accessory input, so you would be able to trigger the device with the Merlin / Orion or a wireless remote. There is a good thread over at Christian Bloch's HDR forum in the general area.

I recently purchased a 500mm f8 multi coated Russian made catadiotropic ( mirror, similar to Dobsion telescope ) lens after researching the mirror lenses on the internet. I have only used the lens one time under non optimal conditions when I was trying to compare a Canon 400mm f2.8L lens with no tel...

Nice web site : ) That ski parapente 360 pano is wild! I was looking at the reflection of you camera on your ski goggles. It looks like your camera is on a pole in the portrait position. Did you remove your hands from the controls while moving the camera to different positions? That is an amazing 36...

Absolutely wonderful : ) This is such a high quality image. I don't think I would have the patience for capturing this type of image. Did you avoid focus bracketing by using f14? I know that you had discussed exposure bracketing, white balance bracketing (for mixed light, other pano), and focus brac...

I recommend that you use small external flash units / speed lights to create light from where it would naturally occur. It is not very practical to carry more than one to two strobes along with a lead acid battery pack. Look at the Amherst "Minimalist lighting" book or the McNally Hotshoe diaries to...

SuperMicro ATX Motherboard, Intel i7, 24 GB max mem, 3 channels

This Supermicro ATX form factor motherboard C7X58-O LGA 1366 would probably be a good board to base a stitcher workstation on. It takes Intel i7 1337 quad cores with a maximum of 24GB of system memory . It has 3 channels for memory instead of two. There was a comment about it not working with memory...

I handled a Canon 7D for about one minute today. The larger eyepiece and viewer along with the increased number of focus points is a fabulous improvement. I saw another person using the leveling feature. The light meter displays +/- 3 EV ( manual page 38) The exposure bias may be set up to +/- 5 EV,...

GURL, maybe you already are aware that HolgerS used krpano for this panorama. Krpano does have a feature for sharpening the tiles and controlling the maximum zoom. I don't like the 100% zoom on gigapan, nor do I like the sampling used to make the top of the image pyramid. I just continue to try and ...

Holger, Excellent job. Did you program a flash plugin for the snapshots ( small images / thumbnail images ) at the bottom of the panorama? With these panoramas it is difficult to exposure bracket it because it is so large. I recently captured a 612 position panorama with three exposure brackets. I e...

If you are going to spend this amount of money you would probably be much better off if you buy a small fibre channel disk array with a RAID controller. You can use 15K or 10K RPM drives and RAID 0.

If I was to buy a camera for HDR bracketing today, I would probably buy the Nikon D700 or the new Nikon D300s. I would also buy the Promote. The Promote would actually give a Canon camera capabilities beyond the Nikon camera controls, but I do not know an easy method of coupling that with a robot su...
