I think you just have to take one shot at a time and after every shot move the camera and your body to the right(or left) and just keep doing that until you have captured everything you wanted. Then you spend the rest of your life editing them together in photoshop. :lol:


someone else will be able to explain it better. :wink:

There is also software out there which helps you with the task. Have a look at the results of this Google search.

panoramas work best if you rotate the camera around its focal point instead of just turning your body, make sure you leave about a 20-50% overlap so when stitching together in software later, the program knows what to do, and also use manual mode to ensure each exposure is the same.

To avoid distortion at the edges of each frame, you should also avoid wide angle focal lengths.

I enjoyed watching this turorial on YouTube. It's all well explained and there are some good tips. This guy works makes a lot of videos about photography, also reviews. To Gordon: I don't watch his reviews, except the A700's. Your reviews are better!

Hi Kriss,

Panorama's are really fun to make and I think there is always a sense of awe when looking at panoramic photo.
I use a freeware program called Hugin (cute name huh) that is a gui front end for autopano and enblend.
It is really easy to use and produces magnificent results.

Here are example photos made with hugin:

Hugin Website:> http://hugin.sourceforge.net/

Hugin: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/hugin/hugin-0.7_beta4_windows.zip?modtime=1170542918&big_mirror=0

Bjorn:
That was a great video. I never have thought about shooting all the shots in manual. Then the idea of shooting all the shots in portrait mode for greater depth is brilliant, I have to try that. I wonder if that messes with the software stitching at all?

Cheers,

Jim
