Hmmm... suprised I haven't posted this here yet! This was the one... the one that only AutoPano could figure out When APP stitched this together I bought it... end of story.
This scene cannot be captured w/ conventional camera systems... this is the equivalant of about a 5mm lens in 35mm terms, and even less in digital terms. I shot it w/o a pano head, but tons of overlap. No other program I tried could hack this one out... but APP did, and wonderfully
From what I recall, this is about 18 - 20 source images. Honestly I have to run it all over again... I have all of the source files, but one of my drives went down and it had the output files. No sweat, all of the good stuff is backed up.
@ 200mm I hope your subjects are far away. You'll fight horrific depth of field challenges with near/far elements at that focal length. In that respect, digital mosaics have the same limitations as medium format film cameras. You can only stop down so far... and even then, the DOF is limited at longer focal lenghts.
