New LENS Test!

by Octavias » Fri Jul 19, 2013 6:18 pm

Good Day everyone, despite the incredible heat from hell here in NY. I still managed to find a cool basement to shoot a test virtual tour with my new lens! I just got the Nikon 10.5mm lens and i shot this VT on F8 on Aperture priority with 1.0 bracketing. Would love some feedback on the quality of the Pano and the stitch, in my personal opinion it came out pretty good but would love some professional feedback. Thanks!

Pano looks fine to me - what is this location your friendly local torture chamber?

hahah Thanks Mediavets! No, its an unused part of a retail store's basement that they don't use anymore :) I was doing the first test there on my lunch brake :)

Hey Max!

I found 8 as optimal for indoors. But there´s not much difference to 5,6 qualitywise.

How many lateral directions are you capturing? When a friend of mine shot with (i think) that lens, I see much more chromatic abrasion on his panos. He was doing quad - lateral. I shoot with a Tokina 10-17mm @ 10mm with a crop sensor it's at 16mm. I have to shoot 6 lateral directions, and it seems to come out as nice as yours. Second question, when you say "1.0 bracketing" how many exposures are you capturing; 3,6,9...? Also, what's your HDR rendering tool of choice?

Clean shot. Cheers!~

Klaus, i did as well. I used f.8 for indoors with my Saymang 8mm. But when i started using this lots of people told em that 5.6 is bets for the sharpness. I will do another test on 5.6 to compare and i will get back to you on it!

Drew, thanks for the comment! I did 6 shots around and one Zenith and one Nadir shot. And bracketing i used 3 shots 0, -1,+1 for each image and HDRed it in HDR pro. but honestly I am looking for a better "Bracketing software" rather then HDR. Need mroe realistic tones.

I will second Destiny's motion for Photomatix. It's does HDR nicely.

Klaus the evangelist......:), but I use Photomatix Pro as well so preach on...btw, Klaus and Des agreed on something (now you both go wash your mouthes :)). By the way I use the Panosaurus 2.0 as well.....great piece of all American engineering (seeing the Dreamliner maybe the last one :( ).
