Re: Crop(DP1M) vs Stitch(DP2M)

I've tested the DP2M with stitching. If you do every 15°, 5 images gives you the equivalent of an 18mm lens on FF. 6 images, about like a 15mm lens on FF. The height is more limited than with the FF lenses unless you do a double row, then with up 15° and well, 2 rows of 6 images approximates the 15mm quite nicely.

I used AutoPan Giga for stitching, after converting the RAW files to TIFF. I used the small Ninja Nodal Pano R1 Rotator to get the vertical 15° and J Milch L-bracket for the DP2M.

BTW, the exit pupil for the DP2M seems to be just at the rear of the knurled focusing ring (at the interface of the knurled and clear section). When positioned there, I see no parallax error.
