Hi.. We have just come back from a couple of days up at the Sunshine Coast.. I tried to capture a few wide panos but when stitching I discover different issues with APG and PTGui..
The blending is much better with PTGui, however distortion is apparent with PTGui.. APG does a much better job at keep to the true contours of the landscape, but this changes after using the Vignetting and Haze Plugins..
The Haze Plugin provides a split screen to see the before and after.. The Vignetting Tool however, provide this option but does not split the screen to see the before and after..
After Lens Correction-Vignetting and Haze reduction, I would have to say that the Haze Plugin is excellent, however the Vignetting tool does nothing much to fix the issue.. I will give Photoshop a try out to reduce the Vignetting..
I captured this by hand using my D800 and 18-105mm.. Its the biggest zoom I have.. There are a few blurry spots.. I did not have time to test my 14-24... http://members.westnet.com.au/dps/SunshineCoast/GlassHouseFinal.html
Another example of the Haze Plugin with the GlassHouse Mountain.. It works really well.. This is the limit of my 18-108 lens.. After it rains, there are heaps of water falls cascading out of the mountains..
