Go to ksmt.com 2004-2005 panoramas

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 images.

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.
