Panogear any good?


I have tried to do some photo-stitching but I would like to level up.

I'm mostly using stitching creatively (Brenizer, funne perspectives, same person several places on same picture etc.) but I also would like to be able to do some wide angle (and high resolution) landscape pictures.

My problem is that I am doing it handheld - or rather, my probem is that I can't do it very well handheld.

So my question is if I should buy more stuff or learn more techniques (or practice those I know).

I would appreciate any thougts on both subjects.

1) What equipment do I need? I am considering the PanoGear motorised head - and a good tripod to go with that. What tripod? Any thoughts on this head? Anyone who have tried it? What's good, what's not?

2) How do I avoid making parallax errors.

I have made a few pictures, take a look:

Handheld with Canon 20D, original is slightly more than 15.000 pixels wide.

(Taken with my newer Nikon D800 - Original is slightly more than 44.000 pxiels wide).
