Using only 2 imagesHello Im using the follwoing equip:
Nikon Coolpix 8800
Nikon FC-E9 Fisheye lens
Swarovski Tripod 1
The majority of pano's created using 3 pictures turn out fairly good... two always line up perfectly and the third is always off by a bit... easily fixed with some quick photo editing. Im not totally happy with the lighting... and am still experimenting with differnt settings.... one pano that just does not work for me is one created with just 2 photos.... there is always a fair sliver of the photo missing... the FC-E9 is supposed to take a 183 degree photo... but when I try to stitch them its wacked... and the tripod looks like a football... the example in panoweaver is much nicer.. the tripod is much more rounded...
I dont know what the problem is... I suspect its the rotator bracket... I dont like it... and although the 8700 and 8800 are virtually identical I do not think that the 8800 works properly with this bracket... Im tempted to buy a kaidan, but then theres more money... and what if I dont get better results with that...
Im interested in hearing others experiences with panos from just 2 photos.... any similar problems? any suggestions?
