generaly when you trivel specialy like turist you have 2-8 minutes to take a frame
you shoot 3 frames with wide angle lenses and stich the pictures at home

with tripod you can stich 10 frames of all focal lenses you whant

it is time consuming,you can miss the right aerea for stiching the frames <- 50MP shot stitched from 29 frames using a Sigma 50mm F1.4 handheld. Took about 1 minute to take all the shots.

Took a bit longer on my computer to stitch them, but I don't think that's a big deal. I even did one with my 70-200 at 200mm, and that was barely more than 30s or a minute for like 20 shots.

here is an example of a 9-frame pano with the FA31 (3 rows x 3 columns).

Peering Down

I'm at the top of a waterfall looking down to the pool below.

I actually bracketed 3 exposures for each frame to compress shadows and highlights, so this final image represents a blend of 27 actual shots (mostly done manually with layer masks). Because some areas of the scene were almost completely in shadow, I got some help from Photomatix to bring up the background foliage; thus, it has a bit of a tone-mapped "look".

here is a piece of the center zoomed in a bit so you can see some detail (.tif without final processing):
