  1. Giga Pan Imaging Systems

    At this time it only works with small digital cameras. Imagine what it could do with a D3.

    Have you tried Photoshop CS3?

    It's available and works with just about every camera.:wink:
     
  3. I have Photoshop CS3. I've made panos in CS2 and CS3.

    The link above shows a mechanical device to automatically orient the camera so that hundreds of photos can be stitched together. By stitching hundreds of photos it creates a "GigaPan" which is a huge pano. The software permits panning and zooming over the internet.

    The device is experimental and still in Beta. The technology started at Carnegie University in Pittsburgh.

    Here's one
    I made using a D200 and CS2 about a year ago. Use the controls on the left or click one of the snapshots under the pano. This is only six photos stitched and barely qualifies as a GigaPan.

    Has anyone used Photosynth yet?

    What do you think about it?
     
  6. Personally I stopped reading when it mentioned everyone on the Internet could view it. I would rather be in control of who see's what when it comes to my images. Just me, I guess, but that's the way I feel about it.

    Another thing about that site is there is little quality control in terms of what they allow to be posted. Most the images being shown would have ended up in my reject pile
