Canon 10D, Sigma 8mm F4 EX CIRCULAR FISHEYE
Stitch: PanotamaTools + PTGui
Retouch: Photoshop Elements
Message from ksmt.com : Take three or five picture or photography ( hemisphare
) using Circular fisheye lens, digital SLR CANON EOS 10D plus SIGMA 8mm
F4 or a compact camera NIKON Coolpix 990 plus FC-E8 fish eye converter.
Sigma 15mm F2.8 diagonal fisheye lens is handu for both Cubic VR and Macro.
15cm from film (about 4cm from the lens) is pretty powerfull for close
up or macro pictures. Normal ( rectangular ) images taken using SIGMA 12-24mm
or CANON EF 17-40mm or TS-E 24mm ( shift rise or fall ) or Power Shot A75
plus 0.7x wide converter or IXY digital or Sony Handycam can also be used.
Tripod or monopod with panorama head are sometimes used for horizontal
( perpendicular axis ) rotation , but hand held is often good enough. Be
sure you use manual exposure and shutter speed and manual white balance
and carefully choose the best exposure. Also turning camera around nodal
point ( end of lens ) is important. Check and manage the pictures ( RAW
and JPEG ) using EosViewer.
Synthesize equirectabgular or clindical image from multiple hemispheric
images ( hemistopher ). Panorama Tools ( PTStitcher ) plus PTGui are used
to crop, optimize Yaw Pitch Roll and FOV ( Optimizer ) using user defined
control points. A Photoshop database ( .psd ) file with or without feathe
is written for manual retouch through TIF file. Edit the mask layers of
equirectabgular image to get smooth joint of layers, then output 2:1 aspect
ration ( ex. 4000x2000 ) JPEG image. I use Sony VAIO or Fujitsu BIBLO or
IBM Thinkpad with Windows XP operating system.
QuickTime Virtual Reality ( QTVR ) cubic ( spherical ) panorama file (
.mov ) is generated using Panoweaver of Easypano. Convert from equirectabgular
or clindical image to cubic panorama in QTVR format. The cubic panorama
displayed in a viewer which you can control with your mouse to look around
from a single view point of any 360 degree. It's a spherical picture or
virtual reality Photography of panoramic image which gives you afeeling
you are really there in a small file size good for internet. Homepage builder
is used to make html files for my web page http://www.ksmt.com. I often
visit www.panoramas.dk which is a famous web site for full screen panorama
Another handy wey to make panorama is PhotoStitch software from CANON if
you have a CANON camera.
CANON timer remote contoroller TC-80N3 is used as interval timer. You can
take a serires of pictures automatically. Some sample movies taken by EOS10D
using interval timer controller TC-80N3. Pictures taked by interval timer
are showed by Java script at 30x-90x speed. Clouds moves very fast and
it's very interesting.
