linear panorama / route panorama / linear slit photography
8 months ago

Did anyone try this? I have been pondering over such photography for some time. I.e. making a composite still-image where the camera (or subject) is moving. Shooting e.g. cramped interiors "as if" you had a perspective-flattening extreme tele at large distance sounds interesting to me.

Why do they use a slit in front of the video camera? Would it not be sufficient to use a good-quality 1080p30/60 camera in manual exposure in portrait mode (1920 pixels vertically), move the camera (e.g.) along a straight path at constant speed, and then pick out the central line(s) of each frame, stitching them side-by-side for a still image?
