How to take pano shots.

I am using a canon 5d with a rotator head.  Stiching is no problem.  However, the color/brightness varies with each picture taken.  What camera settings should I use?

Hello,

Are you using the auto settings when taking the pictures?  You should really use the same full manual settings for all the pictures and lock AE.

Yep that should work.  By setting it to manual you not allowing the camera to continually adjust exposure as you turn towards brighter and darker areas.  It will keep the same tone throughout the series of photos.
