I also found this one: http://www.roundshot.ch/xml_1/internet/de/intro.cfm It's really expensive but on hte other hand you need no interface to program it. It looks stable. They have a rental service. too. With a device this costly it is good to have the possibility to try it out before you buy it.

Adam here is a little tutorial ti create a mirrorball and how to put text around it. First of all you have to have an equirectangular panorama having an exact aspic ratio of 2:1. Your example wasn't exactly 2:1, hence the black bar on the bottom half of your Panorama. Now open the panorama in PS. Ap...

Adam, that one was easy. I just copied the left side of this wonderful carpet. This gave me a new layer after insertion of the copied piece. I mirrored it ant placed it over the tripod on the left side. I reduced the opacity of the layer, containing the copy of the carpet to 70% to place it correctl...

Adam,

there's no tripod. The mirror ball mentioned above is a nice option, that is quite easy to accomplish. I think this option is included in Pano2VR. But it can easily be done in Photoshop as well. You can apply text around the mirror ball with copyright information etc.

Apple iPad

Apple has announced the iPad. Could it be the master device for controlling motorized pano heads in the future. As some cameras provide WiFi connectivity the iPad could also help us doing a quick preview of our panoramas. Maybe an APP App for the iPad, too? Here is a link to the specs of the iPad: h...

Do you think that it is possible to do 4 around in portrait mode with this lens?

It might be possible but you certainly need a nadir and a zenith shot. I processed your handheld panorama with cubic converter to show you the "black holes" that need to be filled.

Adam, I think you have to take a few test shots as Jeffrey pointed out in his review. I'd suggest take one shot with the lens focused at infinity and another shot with the lens focused at an object at about 3 meters away. Inspect the resulting Pictures on your computer and you'll see if your Samyang...

Having known this article before could have made my work, shaving the Samyang easier. I think about to adjust the focus ring, however with ...

Using scissors is the quickest way. The front lens comes off easy. You only have to be sure to press the tips of the scissors blades firmly into those holes. But the process might be not necessary at all because I emailed Samyang suggesting to sell the lens without a lenshood. I'll keep you informed...

Hi Klaus, there is actually only one lens available on the market, the 12-24 made by Sigma, which covers a full frame DSLR. It has an angle of view of 122°.

I just tried to further optimize the panorama. Playing around with the APG settings I chose the Gigapixel option and the RMS improved from 8.5 to 3.5 without editing CP's. I changed the projection from planar to mercator and got this result. Some smaller ghosting in the lower left of the pano are du...

Hasselblad lenses on Nikon D700

I recently bought an adapter to mount Zeiss lenses from my Hasselblad on my nikon D700. I bought it because I thought it was a pity to own all those wonderful lenses and hardly use them since I mostly shoot digital now. I did a test today and it looks promising. I used the Zeiss Sonnar 150mm F4.0 wi...

Hi Folks, I'm still on my Christmas vacation Today was a very nice cold and sunny day in Tuscany. So I thought it was good to further test the shaved Samyang. I went to the Abby of Sant' Antimo, which is about 45 km#s south of Siena. I took this pano inside the Church. 4 shots without the nadir shot...

Hi Adam,

looks better than the other pano you posted of the same subject. Did you use planar projection? Which setup did you use for your Samyang? I'll do a similar shot, placing the camera at a similar setup like you did. How far were you away from the main entrance of your Univrsity?

Adam you are correct. I set the lens as a non cpu lens in the D700 setup. So the information for the lens is included in the EXIF, which is important for APP. All I do now is to crop the outer region by adjusting the circle in the APP setup. In the next days after X-MAS I plan to do some more test-s...

Hi Gordon, if you look at the pic I posted, watch the two yellow arrows. You'll note two tiny holes. I took a pair of bigger normal household scissors and carefully inserted each tip of the scissor's blades into those holes. Make sure that you firmly press the tips of the blades in place and slowly ...
