DP14 for Panoramas - not so good
Jun 5, 2011

I built a quick manual pano maker for the SD14. More here.

CONCLUSIONS:

o. The slow buffer of the SD14 make pano shooting too slow. After 7 shots I have to wait for the buffer to clear.

o. The autofocus sometimes goes into a hunt and won't take a shot. I then need to turn it to manual. This unpredictable behavior makes it to risky to go through a robotic pano set and miss a shot.

o. The images are nice, but nothing mind-blowing (at least for the purposes of a panorama). My DP1 has shot nice panos by the way.

o. I tried to do some bokeh/mini panos, but again, the camera was too slow and I'd have to wait after a half dozen shots.
