45 pics stitched image in an old chapel....
11 months ago

This is the Golden Chapel in São Francisco church, in João Pessoa, North-East Brazil ! The chapel is actually very dark, so I had to use 3 seconds shutter-speed for ISO 100, with a D800 and 24-120 f/4 lens at 120mm. !

I installed my tripod at ~8 meters (25 feet) of the wall and started shotting from the extreme top left, right down to the lower right. It took 45 shots to get it !

Then, I loaded them in PTGui which did -automatically- an excellent job, and ended-up with a 3.95 Gb. (!!!) *.TIF file, of 30865x23016 pixels ! I had to reduce it to handle it a bit faster, and I eventually finished with a 23.8 Mb. / 10000x 7457 pixels *.JPG !

Now, to see the ORIGINAL image, click on: http://www.pbase.com/scherrer/image/153643775/original and use the bottom and right sliders on your screen to navigate into the image ! The amount and IQ of details are really impressive... All in all, I'm EXTREMELY happy with my "consumer" 24-120 f/4 !

Enjoy !

J-P.

...when you get to the image in Pbase, click on ORIGINAL below it to get the full size one !

It seems like Pbase doesn't allways show the full size !

Awesome work! I love my 24-120mm F/4. I think a lot of gear heads think it's either 24-70f2.8 or not at all. Truth is, 24-120 is the perfect all around lens. The optical performance is more than respectable and the VR gives me far more keepers than the 24-70mm that I had.

Did you use a pano rig of some sort? I use PT Gui as well but I am new to it. I am relieved that it is such a capable program.

Amazing work J-P

Your work requires a lot of patience and skill obviously. I use PTgui as well so I have a technical question:

What specs are your computer, RAM & processor?

What was the approximate processing time for generating the panorama?

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks !

I'm blowned by the 24-120 IQ ! Even fully open, and from 24 to 120mm., it's just as sharp as the "pro" 24-70 f/2.8 that I had previously.... which, after a fall in thick grass from 3 feet up broke and was judged irreparable by Nikon  ! So much for "would be PROFESSIONAL lens" !

About the "legendary" (!?!) 24-70 f/2.8, read my post @ bigconigjust above !

I only used my old Manfrotto 190/PRO with a 488RC2 ball-head !

Talking about PTGui capabilities, I've been using it since the first version and LOVE IT: I just throw my RAW files in and let it work ! For more serious works with PTGui, have a look at my spherical panoramas (see in my signature).

Cheers,

J-P.

Thank you for the kind words !

My PC runs under Win 7 Home Premium SP1 with a QuadCore Intel i7-3770 Mhz, 16278 MB (1333 DDR3 SDRAM). The C:/ HD is a Samsung SSD 840 Pro of 250 Go.

As much as I remember, it took less than 10 minutes for PTGui to process the original file, which was about 4.5 Gb. (before to crop it to get a "clean rectangular image" of 3.95 Gb.) !

Do I detect some kind of typical german delicate sense of humour ?

I should hope so...

I will tell the cleaning staff to do a better job before I go back there !

BTW, the spiders themselves were nice enough not to appear in the image, or didn't I notice them ?

Actually, someone on another forum (Panoguide.com) discovered 2 little stitching errors ! I re-stitched the whole thing and replaced the image at Pbase.com. Hopefully now, there's no more errors !
