45 pics stitched image in an old chapel....
9 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!

Impressive!  The cleaning crew won't like you though, as you can see the old spiderwebs they missed

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 !
