DP2S Panoramas

I've built a smaller panorama head and took some panos with a Sigma DP2s.

I like the way the camera beeps while on 2-second shutter mode. It puts me in a rythm so I can take all 51 shots (17 images by 3 rows) in a few minutes.

I've also come up with an acronym to help me shoot panos: WIFEL

Make all MANUAL

White balance
ISO
Focus
Exposure
Level

Here my blog post

What I'm really after is multi-image stitching with my SD14 using this smaller/lighter pano head. With $50 worth of hardware you can make a non-nodal point head that will allow you to create images way past what the SD1 can do.
