Heres a couple from Yosemite a few months back... first one is 3 shots with the 16mm Z, second is ~10 shots with the FA28.

I usually meter in the center, then pan back and forth to check the edges and make sure I'm not messing anything up. At this distance, AF wasn't really an issue and I used Auto WB. Merged using CS2 - I'm thinking of going back and doing them again in CS3 since I've heard its better at blending...

Very nice. CS3 is much better not only at aligning the images but in the blending. Finally Photoshop's photomerge is actually very good and not just ok. I am frankly surprised as Adobe doesn't general go back to a feature introduces versions ago and improve them, so this was a surprise.

Well here is my very first spherical panorama. It isn't bad in my opinion. But, I think the technique of shooting a full 360 degree panorama and then using a 3D program to wrap it on a sphere requires that there be things in the sky area (though there does need to be areas of just sky (you can't cut off trees and stuff). So this one I think is a little hard to make out.

For those wondering. This is Bodega Head at Bodega Bay California.

I do plan to keep playing. This was done with the Manfrotto 303SPH panoramic head, 055 tripod and RealViz Stitcher 5.6 unlimited.

Here you go Roy, I did this for a local realtor using the 20-70 on my DS! Use the +/- key to zoom out or in and the cursor to move right or left.

It is sized down quite a bit so it loads faster on the realty site, but you get the idea.

I just came across a new type of pano head that is apparently computer controlled and keyed to the lens' FOV, so that your able to take quite a few images to stitch into a very high resolution panorama.

The unit is being offered in beta testing (for less than $300) and is associated with Charmed Labs, Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group, and Google.

For more information, take a look at .....

enjoy!
