D800E panorama.. 174mp of city skyline in 20 seconds of shooting
Jun 22, 2013

So it was a nice day in Hong Kong, little bit of heat distortion, so I decided to do a 10 shot handheld panorama with my 70-200f4 and see how it would turn out. This is a 1920 pixel wide version of the final image:

And on the far left there is the Exhibition Center at Wan Chai, here is that at 100%, little bit of heat distortion on a few of the verticals:

I have to say, I've made plenty of panoramas before, but this is the first time I've had to downsize from 39000 pixels long to 30000 just in order to save it as a manageable Jpeg to show friends at a paltry 99 megabytes on highest jpeg settings. At original size it saves at 4gb minimum, now I just need to find a spare wall long enough to print it at a good size
