Contents

fma38

I live in France, near Grenoble. I'm also the developer (and french translator, of course) of Papywizard.

Configuration

  • camera: 20D
  • Papywizard platform(s): Nokia N800/maemo OS2008, Tablet HP TC1100/linux
  • interface(s): Tronisoft TTL-RS232 converter + AIRCable MiniOS RS232-Bluetooth converter
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): custom crown

Usage

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.

I plan to use a pole for semi-aerial panos (partial and spherical).

I'm also planning to build a servo-based panohead, like Phil's PanoDuino.

BeeZed

I am a hobbyist living in New Zealand.

Configuration

  • cameras: Nikon D70, Nikon D80, FujiFilm S3 Pro
  • Papywizard platform(s): Nokia 770/maemo OS2007HE
  • interface(s): SmartFun BlueSMIRF Bluetooth-TTL converter + SONY 12v > 4.5v power supply
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): None yet, but I am using arca swiss rails to replace the stock L bracket.

Usage

I will use it for automated partial panos and the occasional spherical using primarily my Nikon 10.5mm FE, and lenses in the 18-50mm range. I really want to test the limits of the technology in the longer term, exploring time lapse panography, and eventually slit scan with a scanner based camera.

Mediavets

I'm Andrew Stephens. I live in Isleham, Cambridgeshire in the UK. Pano photography is a hobby. Papywizard beta tester.

Configuration

  • camera: Nikon D40.
  • Papywizard platform(s): Nokia 770/OS2007HE & N800/OS2008, IBM Thinkpad T23/Windows 2000 Pro, Dell GX270 desktop/Windows XP Pro.
  • interface(s): Tronisoft 4201 TTL-RS232 convertor + Tronisoft BTLink RS232-Bluetooth adapter.
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): None. The Nikon D40 is a small bodied DSLR and NPP can be achieved without modifications to the Merlin mount.

Usage

Spherical panos using Nikkor 10.5mm FE and Sigma 8mm f3.5 FE. Partial panos using 10-55mm Nikon 'kit' zoom.

Paul

Living in Bonn, Germany, German translation of Papywizard.

Configuration

  • camera: Olympus E-510, 9-18, 14-42, 40-150, 70-300
  • Papywizard platform(s): N800, TC1100/Win7
  • interface(serial): RS232-TTL converter and LS7805 voltage regulator
  • interface(bluetooth): PapyMerlin (runs like a charme, just plug&play)
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): custom crown, rail with engraved mm scale and adjustable modified quick release

Usage

Partial and spherical panos. Sphere PW Preset with 5-7-5 pics on -55 0 + 55 degree for FL 9mm crop 2 lens on Olympus E-510.

Gordon

GigaPixel Photographer, living in London, UK

Configuration

  • camera: Canon Powershot S5IS, Canon 350D, Nikon D40
  • Papywizard platform(s): BT-Serial + Papywizard on Nokia 770/maemo OS2007HE, WinXP
  • interface(s): Tronisoft 4201 TTL-RS232 convertor + Tronisoft BTLink RS232-Bluetooth adapter
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): None as yet, will adapt to suite camera

Usage

Being one of the few early adopters and developers being at the cutting edge of this new amalgamation of technology, I wish to explore the images that can be created and also develop this new media into the mainstream, to be shared and enjoyed by all. My primary focus is GigaPixel Photography (Gigapanography) with an interest in Pano images for educational and creative usage.

Living in Frankfurt, Germany

Configuration

  • camera: Nikon D200
  • Papywizard platform(s): Linux on a laptop + gphoto2
  • interface(s): Teleskop-Austria Bluetooth unit
  • Merlin/Orion modification(s): None yet

Usage

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.
