Playing around with multirow pano's
Lens: DA50mm/f1.8 Camera: K-5 IIs Photo Location: Heiloo, NL ISO: 80 Aperture: F7.1 
Posted By: newmikey, 06-18-2016, 11:18 AM

Recently I have acquired a neat pano-ballhead with clickstops as well as some other bits 'n bobs. It is absolutely great fun playing around and attempting to stitch these things together. I use Hugin of course, a very powerful pano editor and (important to me) fully cross-platform and open source.

This one is the reult of 3 rows and 4 columns of bracketed triple exposures - a total of 36 individual image files resulting in 14782X7391 pixels (a whopping 109 megapixel). Sharpness of the image in even the smallest details is excellent (see 100% crops of 1280x960 pixels).

The amount of work is huge, Hugin is huffing and puffing away for some 35 minutes and my poor laptop is creaking under the strain...

So, what are you going to do with the file?

Delete it of course. I'm just trying to learn how to deal with this - call it temporarily bored.

For an exercise that's pretty impressive.

You really should keep it as proof of concept.

Played with this as well at the time I had an K200D camera. Also using Hugin for the stitching, where we can check and balance match points. That's good to try it out and then, if one day you want to make a large print of a panorama, you can use the same method; which gets you to high resolution prints without spending on a higher resolution camera. Of course, it's more work then single shot, but it works.

Neat. How long did it take to stitch? Seems like files that size would take forever.

About 8 minutes actually for the TIF one, not counting creation of the EXR file (which takes a lot longer but I ended up not using it)
