    Fan Foel and the Canon 5D Mk2

    Climbed Fan Foel (810m) in South Wales yesterday, and thought I'd lug the 5D up to the top!

    This was near the top of the ridge, and is a 5-shot panorama stitched in CS5.

    If you pick the right days there is nowhere better. Trouble is there are not many 'right days'.

    Rob I meant to ask - was there a particular reason for stitching 5 photos and were the joins vertical ? The shape of the image is such that it could be done with one shot I would have thought ? Not that I can see any stitching marks.

    I was testing different functions with the camera. I did a static shot (the BW) a stitched (the pano), and I shot a video on the summit, but I can't post that here, I'm afraid.

    Also, the 5D is full frame and although I had a 24-105L lens on it, I had trouble getting everything in and I was not able to step back. The full image from a single shot of the 5D is 5616x3744 (21MP), but this pano came out after cropping as you see it at 7071x4733 (33MP). That gives you great resolution. The size before cropping was aboit 44MP.

    I've made some changes to my YouTube account, so I can post the summit video now. I meant to shoot an in-line still while I was filming, but I forgot to do it. I'm sure it works though. I used an ND grad on the lens as the sky was bright, and it's made the sky a nice blue.
