In the panorama field, hardware is also part of the success. You can discuss here about it: camera, computer, pano head, anything

Alexandre also agreed to implement a more generic Import wizard/filter for any regular grid/mosaic image set, which woudl also accommodate images shot with the camera in a  vertical orientation and using pateres other than those supported for /by Giagpan heads. Such a generic Import Wizard/filter would be fine for use with Panomachine image sets without that optional lone zenith image.

Yes, that will be a good way!

However I´ll look to improve the MK PanoMachine, too.

Have a nice time

Hi Marc!

That´s very interesting! Because the Panomachine´s technical skills are obvious: it´s accurate AND fast.
Of course such a device can´t be done in the Merlin´s price range.

And I´ll look to papywizard :cool:

Thanks all for the good advices!

Hi Marc

You have already in the past year made progress with you Mk PanoMachine, by listening to people requests, such as adding the vertical rotor to your kit.
I just wished I had the funds!

keep it up

So... What's the bottom line as we speak?
I'm trying to digest all this and I"m thinking about going with MK Pano Machine or Panogear.

I'm looking at a system for 360x180 panos, HDR, and good xml type import (that really works... I've had problems with sky sometimes).

So what is the bottom line?
I'm looking at getting maybe a "MK Pano Machine" or "Panogear". I need HDR, and prefer wireless, and xml papyizard files (for stiching sky or plain areas).

I believe you plan to use a Nikon D700 body? Is that correct?

This is quite a large DSLR and if you want to mount it at the NPP for 360x180 panos you will have to modify the crown/dovetail clamp on a Merlin/Panogear head.

If money is no object then you might consider the Clauss Rodeon VR robotic head which will more readily accommodate large DSLRs and for which an Import wizard/filter exists to assist with the placement of 'featureless' images:

What sort of lens/lenses are you planning use on the D700 when shooting 360x180 panos on a robotic head?

The camera will be a D700+50mm

How do you plan to get the D700 to do HDR by 2EV's?
Best I can get is 1EV.
