Hi Plooney

1 of your images was about 150kb the others I saw were around 250kb.  All images I saw were clear sharp and well lighted.  On aDSL all download very fast.

Stitching is excellent.

The image rotation was faster than normal.  That might be because Im running a P4 2.5ghz cpu.

Good work !

What software, camera/lense did you use to stitch these image ?

Dave

Thank You Dave my equipment for this pano:
nikon cp 4500, panoweaver 3.0 (2 shot in, 3 shot out) fc-e8
...and a little help from Photoshop 7.
A question:
exist a panohead at lowcost than kaidan products or detailed shemas for to build one? (i spend much time to remove large part of my tripodhead).
Thanks for your site (360texas.com) that have transmitted me passion and konw-how for panoramas:

Hi Plooney, I am pleased that you enjoy our website Tips page.  If you have not already seen these 2  you might get some inspiration here

http://360texas.com/tips/panohd.htm

http://360texas.com/tips/monopod/monopanhead.htm  While this shows it mounted on a monopod.. the same bracket can be used on your tripod.  All our Mexico panoramas were taken with this bracket.  It works too.

And of course Philo's bracket page:

And using Panoweaver 3  certainly did a great job on your digial imaging.

GREAT WORK !

Dave

hey antonio,

Dave's head recommendations are good if you don't want to invest money in a kaidan head. However, I think you got great results with your current setup.

I don't think you can get better results with any detailed shemas that are outthere. Your current set up did as good a job as any. I tried creating my own bracket head and didn't get good results.

With any panohead, you still have to remove the tripod head.

Questions:

1. What head did you use?

2. Your panos look like you got almost perfect stiching.  Did you get perfect stitching? Or does it look like you got perfect stiching because you touched it up in photoshop?

3. What mismatch factor did you get?

4. How much time did you spend touching up in Photoshop?
