I shoot partial (hi-resolution or not) panos, and spherical panos. For partial panos, I use either a Canon 17-40@17mm, a Canon 50mm lens, or a Canon 70-200@200mm. For spherical, I mainly use a Tokina fisheye 10-17@10mm, but also a Canon 17-40@17mm.

My kit just arrived, I am in the process of getting it to work. The Ursaminor BT-Adapter works just fine under windows, under linux, i have yet to pair him successfully. I guess a little reading is in order to get this done, but probably nothing major. So far, it looks like the Bluetooth dongle under linux is a little skewed; it works just fine under Windows xp.
 +
 +
I soldered a RS-232 level converter, and extended it with a 7805 Voltage regulator, to have a (wired) alternative to the Bluetooth device.
 +
This works fine under linux as well a Windows XP. Since I plan on using gphoto for tethered shooting, I will most probably have an USB cable running to the camera as well, so this is not a big issue for me.
 +
 +
I will try to work a bit on a auto-bracketing algorithm and maybe on timelapse in Papywizard, my knowledge of Python, and time, permitting.
 +
 +
I am interested in panoramic imaging, as well as HDR-panoramas and timelapse-photography. One of my areas of interest is using the spherical images as lightmaps for 3D imaging.
 +
Also, I would love to make a few experiments with Gigapixel photography.
 +
 +
As additional equipment, I have a Meade mount for a LX200GPS, but didn't succeed to have it remote controlled yet.

I am an amateur photographer with the occasional paying gig. I shoot what I
 +
call "Technical Stock" photos, which is my fancy name for product
 +
photography of electronics and other things that can be used for marketing.
 +
I recently found a great deal on a portable 15m mast setup and bought it for
 +
aerial photography. Recto pano mostly. I've had requests from businesses for
 +
"birds-eye" pics and for overhead event and staff shots.
 +
 
 +
The PW/Orion head started as a need for remote camera positioning but I see
 +
the potential for much more fun stuff, including stitching multiple
 +
telephoto lens shots for exaggerated DOF images.

The panos will be used for CGI lighting and Virtual Sets as well as more artistic stuff like making "Small Worlds" and other novel projections.

 +
* '''Interface(s)''': Deltawave "PapyMerlin" Bluetooth module,  I may also eventually move to USB tethered shooting, in which case I would probably also move to USB to serial TTL to control the Merlin. Of course an alternative would be if somebody did a slow version of encapsulated USB over bluetooth. (People have talked about it but I have yet to see it.)  The USB over wifi solutions I have seen people who are interesting but a bit bulky for now.
