    Are panoramas your thing?

    I was just led to the site below today. It is interesting photographically and because I grew up going walkabout through much of this country side. I immediately thought of the CiC crowd.

    Click on one of the selections and then click and move your cursor around. The scene will shift as long as you hold down the button.

    Yes and I bet they are very hard to do. when I muster up enough courage I will try one one day of Lichfield Cathedral fom the centre. But I need equipment first and it is a lot of work.

    So maybe I will just leave it a bit and do it when I get a little better.

    With lens attachment, this is one shot photography from 0 - 360 degree panoramic view. exposure or lighting is no problem. You can use any digital camera, but to view in this fashion you require software provided by the manufacturer. Alternatively you can get it printed normally.

    You can visit this site for more details.

    Have a guess :)

    Re: Are panoramas your thing?

    I'm guessing that it's fone with a fisheye lens and appropriate software. I've done similar stuff inthe past when a panorama is created so that the ends join up; I didn't have the same vertical extent though.

    It reminds me of google maps. I saw a video of the van that takes the video, it has cameras mounted on each side, however I cannot believe that these vehicles are covering the entire countryside.

    Another very interesting site dealing with panoramas. Max Lyons goes far beyond the normal single string panos and has some absolutely breathtaking imagery:

    Making PANORAMAS . and Printing those Panorama are not big issue.
    Issue is only How to view them in impressive manner, as if you are moving with the scene.
