so maybe just change the settings so it shows as a 24mm standard lens and see how that goes.
i tried that. it gives better results as far as image alignment goes (they are correctly beneath each other) but horrible ghosting at the edges of the single images (probably due to the fisheye distortion)
1. Why would one choose a 15mm fisheye on a cropped sensor body?
just trying it out. I lent the fisheye from a friend. Maybe he'll sell it to me alongside his 5D markII.
2. The images are shot landscape - this suggests he may not be using a proper pano head - in which case there's probably a lot of parallax..
3. It appears to be a single row in which case there may be too many images and too much overlap; 25-30% is enough, more is not better.
yes, I don't have a pano head it was shot with a regular tripod. Nevertheless there shouldn't be problems like these.
and i shot tons of images in different rooms and different orientations (landscape, portrait and diagonal, sometimes more overlap, sometimes less overlap, but I don't get satisfying results with any of these. I will post more examples tomorrow I don't have much time now, sorry.
4. Apparently shot in Aperture priority with an aperture of f2.8 - that's all wrong.
also due to just trying out, the shots on the screenshots are just examples I have other pics shot in manual with smaller aperture etc.
The result is consistently perfect in full automatic mode with the newest beta version APG 3.5.2b2.
Yet, I got bad result looking like the OP's with earlier or venerable versions of Kolor's programs (APG 3.0.8 and... APP 2.6.8) even when the correct type of lens (i.e. fisheye) had to be corrected by hand before launching the detection!
I'm at 3.0.8 as well, maybe I'll try the beta and see if I get better results with it.
thanks for your help. Like I said, I'll post more examples (and maybe results if I find out something new) tomorrow.
