Destiny's Very First Pano Tour and Nadir Patches....

by Destiny » Fri Apr 29, 2011 8:51 am

Hey, I like to hear from anyone to let me know how my first pano tour works on Mac and PC....

It should all centre automatically but I want to make sure it does...

Thank you

Destiny...

PS... forgot to tell you... I did everything using apg and ptp.. even the nadir patch... I hope I can remember how I did it all.. :)...

I was really fussy about my Nadir Point setting and it paid off.. I achieved on average a 3.8 RMS.. a couple of them were 4.22 but that was my fault I forgot a couple of rows of images so I had to improvise.. I also have to learn how to do the bracketed shots so I don't get lots of light from the windows.. Its all a big learning curve.. ;) To be honest, I do not think I would have achieved the same results if I did not have the new NN4.. it was just great.. so easy to use and accurate settings every time... The Nadir Adaptor was also great.. it allowed my to create my patches really easily... The only thing I wish I had was the Easy Leveller.. I am sure it will help in getting it level without playing about with the legs which can move during rotation of the NN4.. Especially when swivelling the Nadir Adaptor out which is quite ridged to turn, but I guess it has to be...

Hi Lorenzo... Yes, I used the Nikon 10.5 fisheye with a Nikon D90... It works really well with the NN4...

My setup is great for small paces too....

Very good destiny,
A few small stitch errors,..once you learn to bracket you'll be able to eliminate a lot of the white,...good job with the custom work as well.

Thank you so much for looking at my tour.. I realise I need to learn the bracketing thing.. I have just fine tuned my stitching so now I can try the bracketing shots.. Far too much light came through the window.. but I am learning through my mistakes... I am very happy with my first attempt at nadir patching too.. not perfect on a couple of them but its a learning curve for sure...

So much to learn.. so little time..

Hi Destiny,

Did you design and add the control buttons for your tour yourself?

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve.. I sure did... I made them in Photoshop from nothing... I used the Styles... Very easy to do but very time consuming... After I made them I edited the xml script to make them fit how I wanted them to.. the end Info button is a pain... script only accepts full dimensions.... unless i make it again taking off .2...its just a tab higher as is... by .1, one day I will change it...

Hi Destiny,

How did you get these perfect nadirs? Do you shoot a seperate nadir shot? do you do a lot of postprocessing?

At the moment I shoot 2 rows of 6 at +50 and -10 and then slide the tripod 1 m into the direction of one leg, then extend the leg about 10cm and make my 13 th shot. Not always succesfull though.
Regards, Hans Keesom
I stitch and render for other photographers. Price: 25 euro or less, no cure no pay. If you want to concentrate on your business let me do the stitching for you. Free TB of Dropbox space when you have more then 250 euro business a year.

Hi Hans... I amazed myself too... These were my very first Nadir patches... I used the Nodal Ninja Nadir adaptor to take the Nadir image...
I just moved the tripod back and then took the image.. I then put it into apg and stitched them..... I did it as a bracketed shot... just the nadir.... the rest of the images I stitched a normal... I forget so many things I do so I cannot remember all the setting I used in apg... I should have written them down....

When I did my car Nadir patch I put my elbows on the seat to steady and took several photos.. I managed to get one that stitched almost perfect... My car VR has a couple of bad stitched but this is my first car VR too... I will make sure that my next car VR is much better with bracketed shots to resolve the lighting issue... I should have used bracketed shots for my first pano tour as well... but we live and learn....
