Hmm  looks like the pano has potential. Appears that the pitch, yaw and roll came out good.  This means they had good camera control in place.

Improvement areas could be in AE Lock for even light distribution and better seam blending between the 3 images.

Yes we disregarded the low resolution factor.

As stated way back in the thread, the nodal point has to be out.

I have seen perfect results with the 3 fisheye method using Canon 1Ds with Sigma 8mm Fisheye and stitched with Panoweaver and also 3DVista.

Makes me also wonder why Gary's efforts are way out?

Seaman, I'm also asking if the lens is in fact the correct item?

Regards, Smooth

Seaman,

I'm not exactly sure how I would tell if my images are similar to yours or not, they are different subjects.   But, my images were posted back in the start of this thread if you'd like to see them.

I am using a Sigma 8mm fisheye lens, that is the correct lens, isn't it?

To smooth&NJGary,

I believe 1Ds and sigma 8mm will works fine with Panoweaver based on the test we have done with guyvdb's images and our own images. But I still can not figure out why there fov is much less than 180 in NJGary's image. Do you use adapter or connect fisheye lens to 1DS directly, NJGary?

I do not use any adapaters or attachments, the lens mounts like any other lens.

Maybe a silly remark: the Sigma 8mm's lens hood consists of 2 parts.

You must slide off the ENTIRE hood, not just click off the front plate.

I got cought by this trap a few times, and the result is a smaller round image.

Guy,

BINGO!!  I had absoultely no idea that there was a sleeve on which the lens cap mounted, I thought it was part of the lens design.  Once I slid the sleeve off everything comes out great!

Thank you so much!!!  And, thanks to everyone else that responded to my cry for assistance.

Gary

ROFL

If you had read the instructions with the Sigma 8 mm fisheye lens it is mentioned that you need to remove this.

So glad you are back on track Gary and a good spot by Guy!

Jeez, I feel for you Gary - it must have been driving you crazy! Now you have it sorted we all look forward to seeing the results from your 1Ds and Sigma 8 mm. Least you know where the nodal point is.....

That didn't even cross my mind! But then I read the instruction sheet before using my lens. I can now see how you could easily get court out by this.

Funny how a problem can be looking you in the face (almost!)

Regards, Smooth
