Hi Jeremy,

Mate, sorry for the delay in replying! I've been away for 16 days travelling Tasmania with the wife. Couldn't get near a computer.....

The results look very good.

Can you post some pictures of your gear set up? Camera to Lens on Tripod etc.

I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Congratulations on your wedding Jeremy, I hope you and your new wife have a wonderful day and an even better honeymoon. (They would make some interesting panorama's!  )

Regards, Smooth

Jeremy,

What lens are you using on the 10D and butting the AGNOS adaptor too?

Is it the 4.0L 17-40mm EOS?

I stitched your images and the result was very good.

Regards, Smooth

Yes. My one is 17-40 4.0. 

I did try some shot on last sunday, but the result is not satisfy.  May be it's becasue i am using the light version tripod (manfrotto 742B) and the whole gear is quite heavy. 

I will retry this week again.

Hi,

I have a dedicated camera for pano shots and one for stills.

I use the Nikon 4300 strictly for panos. Why? Small, lightweight, and has the resolution I need for generating panos.    I also don't want to disturb the setup on the pano head. It has been optimized for little or no misalignments when shots are stitched.

The camera stays on the pano head which stays most of the time on the tripod.

For stills, I have the Nikon D70 with the 18-70mm AFS lens.

If you can swing it, why not get both? :)

r,
eagle

I started this year with the 8700 and made some tests with the FC-E9.
I was not really happy with the results.

As it was shown in the stores I bought the D70 with 18-70 lens.
I was happy with this configuration. But with 18mm it is not easy to produce cubic panos.
So since some weeks I also have the 10,5 mm Nikkor.
What can I say?
-> It is a fisheye, but not full circle. (sharp)
-> I use 6 photos for the panos. (about vfov of 138°)
-> for full 360x180° you need 2 additional photos (zenith/nadir)

For panos the combination D70 / Nikkor 10,5 is absolutly a good solution. I do not miss my sold 8700 which I only used for 3 months.

Sure go for 300D, FC-E9 and Agnos MrotatorB. 

Hi Smooth, I found my ultimate solution with my existing 10D.  The quality is great. Go get a MrotatorB for Canon.  Is petty good.

Example is here:

Photos are shown at: http://demo.mixmedia.com/360/041103/CRW_8531.jpg (8531,2,3)

Well, Smooth, I will using this setting for my wedding on coming Saturday. :) More panos will re-do after the big day.

Hi Jeremy,

you have gooten the MrotatorB, what do you think of the make? Is the rotation portion filmsy? as it looks thin and the camera could be too heavy for it?

No. It's very good.  But you really have hold that on a good tripod. The whole "things" is petty heavy.

Hhmmm...

I've been uming and arrring over the purchase of a DSLR for yonks now.... I'm kinda keen on the Canon D20... however, I'll need to buy awhole loada lenses with it... eeekkk... ain't cheap. HHmm. I kinda want to wait until after Xmas when the stores start selling off their additional stock...in the hope to find one at a goodish price. Anyone had any experience with this cam yet??

PS: Yo Smoothie... hope u had a good Tas trip.


If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.
