VR panoramas
In reply to knickerhawk, Oct 29, 2012



Uncropped equirectangular view

Well, maybe this is a slightly biased opinion but I think VR panoramas work incredibly well when shooting church interiors. I've also found that printing them up as equirectangular images gets very positive responses from people, particularly if you crop a little off the top and bottom.

Assuming that you're using M4/3 the Samyang fisheye lens is good value (actually a brilliant lens) for this purpose although you'll also need a dedicated pano head and a remote release. I've shot these panos using Nikon DX and FX gear and the Samyang plus OMD acquit themselves extremely well by comparison. Shooting off a tripod with a remote means that you can use long exposures, small apertures (about F7 with M4/3) and low ISO settings.

Of course you'll need stitching software too... And some practice...
