Help with Mis-aligned stitching

by netline » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:49 pm

Good Day All,

I am using a DIY Panohead which is stable and nodle point is acheived, but I keep on having these annoying misalignements everywhere even though I clean up the control points.

Please give me some advice on how to upload images here, so i may post some examples.

I usually put them on Photobucket then paste the 'share' code into here.

Hi!

Clearly the NPP is not matching.

Please tell us some more specific about your setup.

best, Klaus

At what focal length are you setting your zoom lens?

What shooting pattern are you using?
............

Looking at the photo of your DIY pano head I can't see how you could ever set the camera/lens at the NPP - for multi-row pano shooting - because the yaw and pitch axes of rotation cannot be aligned.

I shoot totally zoomed out if that answers your question.

And in terms of Pattern I am not sure what you would call it but I generally only do 3 Levels of shots starting with top then go anti clockwise, switch to the middle carry on going anti clockwise and again for the bottom.

Is there a better pattern to use?

independant of used camera, lens and head the NPP can be evaluated for your setup for each focal length with the socalled "grid" method.
you only need some sort of grid (I just use one of these: http://www.ikea.com/at/de/catalog/products/10177606/?query=101.776.06 )
there are several grid-instructions on the web, the first one I found now:
http://rosaurophotography.com/html/technical7.html
(inclusive the original "grid" manual I found months ago for me... http://www.outline.be/quicktime/tuto/ )

Hmmm, maybe i am wrong, but with your pano head the nodal point can not be adjusted correctly. The angle point (oops, right word?) of the upper bar is not positioned exactly over the horizontal pivot point / axis.
