Panorama - The Bund, Shanghai
Lens: Contax Zeiss 28/2.8 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Shanghai ISO: 80 Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Frogfish, 10-10-2011, 12:45 PM

6 frame panorama. Trialing the Autopano software - I'm going to have to buy it !

Taken with K5 and the Contax Zeiss 28/2.8. ISO 80 / f8 / 1.6 secs. I recommend you view this fullscreen. BTW it is straight .. it's just that the river bends here.



You probably need to download it full size from my SmugMug site to get an idea of how sharp this is ! I may remove the watermark and print this at around 48" x 12".

What sort of panoramic head did you use if any? I want to get started making panoramics but am told that I need to need get a special pano head to eliminate parallax errors. Thanks for your input

And that picture is outstanding.....

Thanks Roman !

No pano head was used, just a ball head. I'm assuming that no parallax error is visible because of possibly a) the Autopano Pro software I used stitched it beautifully (as I've found it always does) or b) the distance to the subject (the nearer your subject the more likely parallax is likely to be an issue, e.g. indoor real estate shots) was too great to cause a visible shift. If you are a landscape pano shooter then with the right software it seems it shouldn't be an issue.
