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...

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..

The Vignette works much better using Photoshop.. After that I stitched the images.. APG still does not blend as well as PTGui which is odd.. It's still a little patchy..

Hi.. Am I supposed to put the Lens Profile in before this Vignette works.. None of these feature on this Plug-in seem to show a split screen, however there is an option to tick to view it... Perhaps this Plug-in is not working at all. It doesn't appears to be... The Haze is clearly doing a great job...

BTW.. Sure wish I had a better zoom lens ... That's a huge eagle in the distance flying past....
