You are welcome to visit me at:

where you will see the 19 spherical panoramas shot in April 2012 in N-Y with:

- Nikon D5100 Camera
- Samyang Fisheye lens (AE)
- pano-maxx head

Each panorama, constituted of 8 to 10 shots (x 3 for bracketing), has been stitched with APG.

Any suggestions for improvement will be welcome

You have some magnificent images here, I'm heading over to PPE at the end of the month. I'll come back to your site to scout some locations.

Just wondering if the "click to enter panorama" at the bottom of the page is actually visible. After discussing with friends, I got the impression that it was not !

Beuatiful Panoramas...Congratulations...But a little too long loading/waiting times...First I thought it won't load anything; as it is sometimes with older links...

Thank you

Every panorama is about 2.5 to 3 Mbytes. the preview is an equirectangular b&w image (cat. 500 kbytes) and the color panorama is in cubic format (6 cube faces). The too long loading time may also be caused by the server where my site is stored.

I really like the fact you call the site "True reality panorama" So many wrongly use the term "Virtual" ( and "3D") for what we are doing when stitching some photos together...

Thank you Hans

There were two reasons for this name:

- First reason is the one you noted - "True" is in a certain way opposite to "Virtual" - Furthermore, as you know, a panorama is not a true image: when you see it, it appears as frozen space and time, while it is constituted of pictures taken at different times, one after the other - The people and vehicles you see on the panorama, they certainly were there; but not exactly at the same time...

- Second reason - True Reality Panorama (TRP) is a discrete tribute to a famous American writer (the title of the Central Station panorama is a quote taken in one of his novels)

I've got the same set, could you share the settings of the pano maxx? I'm still getting parallax...

Pan-Maxx Settings - Strict requirement:
- 6 images @ - 10 ° or - 15 ° (does not really matter)
- 1 image @ + 45 ° or 50 ° (does not really matter)

In practice, when there is movement captured (people or cars), I prefer to shoot 4 images @ + 45/50° instead of 1; this gives me more flexibility at processing to select/discard the moving features that I want to keep in/remove from the panorama.

If you have the same Samyang, do not forget in Autopano to force the focal length to 8.7 : this will give better results than 8. This figure, the one measured by Michel Thoby, is also the value calculated by PTGUI.
