  • Delighted to... The auto-pan did not complete properly, so I cropped the LHS. I wasn't hiding anything, just giving full disclosure. This discussion of a quick panorama has become ludicrous, and is ...
  • Gerry, the Sony auto-pan program uses quite extreme overlap. I estimate that each frame contributes 9 degrees of the panorama width, but each frame is 37 degrees wide (35mm lens on FF in "portrait ...
  • I've given up on this thread, but just to set you straight, I "slightly cropped" the RHS because the complete panorama wasn't to my liking. Anyhow, if the effect was small in each component frame ...
  • I've familiarised myself with all the focus modes of the Sony and Nikon cameras that I use, but I only use AF-C. Since I rarely use a tripod, I've decided that everything needs "continuous" ...
  • Replied in A bit more
    That's exactly what I intend to do. I'll be using the same location because panorama is the best way of presenting the view. Gerry has already intimated that this view is "Special" because it ...
  • Replied in A bit more
    You seem to be now saying that my pano is somehow "Special". I'll admit that it's different to the exaggerated examples that you present. You need to think "Inside the Cylinder". You still can't ...
  • Replied in A bit more
    You're certainly on my case, and so anxious that I should "learn" (a variant of the old DPR cry of "You do not understand"). If I'm not mistaken, you introduced the notion of projection, but you ...
  • Replied in A bit more
    Gerry, Thanks for your thoughtful contribution. Naturally, I realised that the panorama was derived from a series of plane images rather than a true cylinder, but Sony auto-pans only use the ...
  • Seems odd that you think it necessary to stick a focus aid on your subject. Might spoil the spontaneity, I suspect. I never had a worry with AF on low-end Nikons, and my copy of the kit lens was ...
  • I've used the same email account for 25 years, and it's extremely uncommon for me to receive unwanted emails. I rarely subscribe to "deals" that require my email account, and I'm reluctant to give ...
  • So, apart from those minor issues, it's OK? :-D
  • Replied in Excel
    I had to laugh when you referred to your 2010 Excel as an "old version". My preferred version of MS-Office is 2002, and with "compatibility" patches, it works fine. We are heavy-duty MS-Word and ...
  • I presume that you meant this for the OP, but I tend to agree with you to some extent, however he seems to be intent on FF. Actually I prefer to have both, but a6500 plus a7rII is not what the OP ...
  • There aren't many mirrorless FF bodies, but the best known are the a7 series. They all come with built-in electronic view-finders (EVF) with automatic switching between rear LCD and EVF. I've ...
  • Seems that every newbie wants to shoot in conditions where there's likely to be a problem with the light level; dancers don't usually like you to use a flash, which is one potential solution. You ...
  • OK, if the image has been "mapped" onto a cylinder, why don't we consider what happens if we simply roll out that cylinder so it's flat? With this model, which doesn't require projection, you ...
  • That's simple not correct. The panorama is composed of about 12 different shots, each of which would be quite decent, minimally stretched images (35mm on FF camera). If those shots were taken ...
  • No, it's a rectilinear projection straight from the camera, covering about 110 degrees. What you appear to be saying is that the same shot from a wide angle lens would look the same, which is ...
  • In "my view", you are seriously wrong here. Remember, as you pan the camera, the serial positions of the sensor will be describing a cylinder, meaning that a rectilinear projection of the panorama ...
  • A wide angle lens will give you a different type of view, because you are trying to fit more of the scenery onto a relatively small, flat sensor. It should be obvious from simple geometry that the ...
