Default grand canyon panoramic

I also shared this in a thread in the olympus forum about the free Microsoft Image Composite Editor (MICE) panoramic software.

Not only was I able to stitch 6 pictures into the image you see below but if you click the link you will be taken to an interactive view that will allow you to pan and zoom in on different parts of the full 29MP panorama, please click the fullscreen icon and explore. On the right side i did highlight a few of the rock features

thanks james! I am having a blast building these out of the photos I had taken at the time but not done anything with.

a couple more - same deal, click on the photo and instead of going to flickr you will go into the interactive view

p.s. I should note the first set of input shots was with the camera in vertical mode the last two sets the camera was horizontal (normal) mode.

I used the JPGs right from the Olympus, I did not use panorama mode but the shots were all taken sequentially at the same time.

I'm going to have to try the panorama mode on the PL2. A river runs through out town separating the east and west side and that might be an ideal panorama subject.

James - you don't actually need to use the Panorama mode unless you plan to use the Olympus viewer software. I did all of these with and would suggest you use Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) which is free and allows the creation and publishing of the interactive views.

here's one I cobbled together from some sunrise pictures. You'll notice that because the exposure was different on different sides the color is a bit more saturated on the far left. You'll also notice a bit of a misalignment as I was not as careful with the pan as I should have been. That said it is still really cool imho hope everyone else enjoys.

here is another from outside Page Az showing the great expanse that is the painted desert. This one also has a little misalignment but I figured it was still good enough especially considering it is over 200 degrees of view

Nice job. I'll look for that Microsoft application or software. I looked but it's only available in 32 bit and I have a 64 bit machine. Thanks just the same.

Thanks Rancewam. Now I need to take some shots of the river with a tripod of course.
