I took my DP2M out last night and wanted to share the shot I got. I stupidly shot at 2.8...should have gone way up to get more crispness and detail. But alas, I threw the photos into ICE and voila.

Great first pano!

Some tips: do not go beyond f/11, after that diffraction limits sharpness.
And if you like to create panos, the best panoramic tripod head for the DP
series is the Noise Ninja 3 Mk II.

For highest quality stitching results I recommend PTGui, although AutoPano Pro
is another common choice.

Thanks for these tips. I'll be sure to use them on my next run! I used a Gitzo tripod with a very interesting looking ballhead with all these different settings. I also used a level that hooked into my hot shoe so I could keep it consistent.

I'll look into those programs.

Glad you liked it!
