oh gosh a little scratch on the front element won't show up in the pictures.. especially if you shoot wide open.. their own articles supports this
sesopenko: David Hockney anyone?
Wait.. author wrote up a horrible technique. Instead of the end result at the top of the article (which is sub par by the way). Why didn't the author just use Photoshop's PhotoMerge feature? When done right(which is pretty easy), you end up with a huge image that is merged seamlessly together. The trick is to shoot the individual images with overlap in mind so Photoshop can seamlessly stitch them together. You are also not limited to panoramics in a single direction.
FoolyCooly: I just see another piece of equipment to worry about breaking, malfunctioning or distracting you from what you are really after- Great Pictures. Tethered shooting is a great Parlor Trick but it is hardly necessary for 99% of the the shooting that I do. Maybe your needs are different but instant feedback via EYE-FI card is good enough for my "can I see it now customers".
how is the UI of DSLRs antiquated? You see any evolution of camera UI controls? People don't ask for the UI to be changed because the interface is geared toward physical buttons.. and it simply works... live view exist on many cameras today as well if you want that display oriented interface.. I'd rather turn my rings & knobs than tap away at a 3lb screen that I have to support with my other hand!
booggerg: why tablet? Who the hell carries a table with them in the field? If in the studio, you'd already have access to a color corrected monitor.. Put it on the android phones please....
you must be one of a few.. carrying a boat load camera gear is enough work.. carrying a fragile tablet is the least I want to do.. even with this tether app, carrying a tablet is not worth it IMO
