first pano attempts
Posted By: CJSpangler, 08-31-2008, 08:33 PM

well, I got back from hawaii about 2 weeks ago.

I am testing out how well a handheld pano works with the Microsoft Live Photo stitch (free), cropped afterwards

let me know what you think

i can kinda see the effects of the circular polarizer/edges on some of the pictures, I know for next time I will shoot closer together.

Used the FA 50 1.4, with CL Polarizer

I'll post some other photos from the trip later.

These are really nice. Especially the middle one.

AFAIK, using a polarizer for panos is unrecommended. It's almost impossible to keep the polarization even across the frame. I don't think it matters much how close together you shoot the frames.

Thanks for the comments, I rather like the middle one as well.

Frank, I definately see what you mean with the polarizer - I think I will just take it off when I try panos in the future.

I definately like the looks of these. I'll probably print one out and see how it looks. I was definately suprised out how easy the microsoft application was. Pretty effortless. Really going to try and shoot a lot more handheld panos now.
