92 divided by 4 equals 23 tries to get the F-ing back/forward set.
I got the forward back dialed in on one pano earlier today. Great. I take it outside and shoot a 4+T, come back inside, stitch it and its all f-ed up.
So I shot another 4 inside and its off again, but not nearly as bad as outside. I move it a few times, and then notice I'm way off the gold line by at least 3 mm, but the damn pano shows it being pretty close.
I decided to shoot one more using the same settings, and everything is all f-ed up. I mean way off the mark.
I start over with the gold ring right on the center of rotation. First pano, off by a good 2" or so on the rope line. Adjust forward, a little different. Adjust more forward, pretty close. Just a hair forward, all f-ed up.
Know what I figured out? The POS quick release sucks.
So by accident I got a pano set right on the money. All the seams look fine. The gold line is about dead on with the center of rotation using a plumb bob.
I removed the camera from the quick release and the next stitch is off the mark again. I stitched 4 sets of photos with the only difference being I flipped the switch on the quick release, and I put the camera right back on using the same amount of tension. Nothing was moved, no adjustment was made.
Result? 4 f-ing different results. Majorly different results. I mean the rope I used as a diagnostic line in the image is right on in the first stitch, off by a full diameter of the rope (1/2 inch) in the next too far forward, 1/4" too far forward in the third, and then off by about 3/8" on the final.
WTF? I'm so far beyond frustrated by this crap. I'm taking this POS off the tripod and not looking at it until I get my S3.
Ain't nothing friendlier in the world than a muddy wet dog.
