Re: You can do Pano too
In reply to JAGmtb, Mar 28, 2013

Pano is awesome, I thoroughly enjoy it. But they generally don't work with moving subjects, IE mountain bikers ripping down a trail. Also, you're subject to jpeg if you do the pano mode.

I don't have any experience with manually stitching pictures together, although I have the full adobe suite (including Lightroom 4.3). Are there any guides you would suggest for manually creating your own pano?

Microsoft ICE is free software that does the stitching automatically---vertically, horizontally, or vertically and horizontally at the same time. Just overlap your shots 25-50%. Handheld is possible, but tripod with pano head is better. Use manual exposure and focus so your exposure and focus does not change each shot.

That's it. Really easy.
