I played with Pano tools and the early version of PTGUI. But it looks like that company that patented joining two hemispherical fisheye pictures has hounded him to stop public work on it. Sad.
Had a lot of fun and was curious if it warranted a forum of its own here at the cafe. Doesn't look like it, but hey, everything is fine; we can't be all things to everyone.
Excellent. I have a series taken at Grianan of Aileach in northwest Ireland. I'll try Autostitch. We'll see how it works.super_rep said:Here's a 9 shot hand held panorama of Bernard Lake in Alaska. I just loaded the shots into AutoStitch and it did all the rest of the work.
Not at all. I wouldn't have started this thread if I didn't find the whole area fascinating.frogpix said:In case I have told you more than you ever wanted to know, I'll shut up now........
Have a good one.
Kaidan equipment was what I used with the Coolpix 990. I started with the 900, then 950, 990, 5000 (ugh!) the D100 and now the D2h.frogpix said:Rich,
Take a squint at Kaidan.com and check out their hardware and some of the programs they sell.
It's called Autostitch and I got the tip here on thie site from Gale. Here's an impressive, melancholy, very windy spot in northwest Ireland called Grianan of Aileach. It's a ring fort. It's desolate but beautiful at the same time. This software is sooooo easy!Gale said:Rich,
I was reading the Retouching forum and there is a new freeeeee pano prog. Yeah, I know, whats the name. Well I don't remember. Have to go hunt. Works like a dream.
I would like to try a pano.
I think done right they are beautiful.
With my Coolpix 990 I used a custom Kaidan head. Yes, you do need to get it just right for interior shots. I saw a site a few year back in which the photographer, after taking 3 fish-eye shots then holds the camera face down over the center of the area where the tripod was and stitches it into the three to get a complete spherical panorama. Lots o f work!Reznor said:Hi guys,
do you have special tripod heads to shoot around the nodal point of your lens? I've read a lot of articles on how to eliminate the parallax effect, and it seems a special spherical head is needed. For landscapes, no need to do this because the objects are far away, but when shooting indoor, its hard to have a ghost-free image when using a ordinary tripod and rotating about your camera.
I'm looking for a good head to go with my D70, any recommendations ?
