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