Problem: Today I need about six pictures to create a full panorama for qtvr – to be on the safe side (with 30% overlap so that pano software have an easier time) – I tried five with success but it depends much on the scene. Now, one problem is that a 180 degree view always involve the tripod and the 303SPH panohead. It’s annoying and lots of data is gone due to this.
Possible solution. Create a panohead especially for one camera and one lens (SD14 + 4.5 Sigma) shooting three pictures at 120 degrees and tilted about 30 degrees and one straight down and if my calculations is correct I would have a full pano with only four pictures needed. Not possible with the 303SPH. For the last picture I have to attach 1/4th of a circle so that I can take a last top picture. What do you think?
