    Kilgore, that is very kind and gracious of you to say that, and is indeed an honor coming from someone who has 7 GigaPans each having over 10,000 view counts with one of them over 100,000 view counts. Thanks :)

    10,000 hits! The first of your gigapans to do achieve this total I believe - congratulations!

    By reading a number of blogs concerning either the Leica D-Lux 4 or the Panasonic LX3, that some are very happy and some are not. Primarily the ones that are unhappy are unhappy because there is not currently an Adobe plug-in to read the RAW files. For me, that is not an issue because the D-Lux 3, the way I have it set-up, gives me almost the same quality JPG files as it does RAW files and as we all know, the Gigapan Stitcher does fine with JPG files.

    As a comparison of the Leica D-Lux 3 to one of Nikkors best lens, look at the stop-sign snapshot in www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 6913 and follow the link to a similar pano taken with the Leica... pretty amazing results :)

    Thanks... glad you like it. You may try to find a D-Lux 3, but sadly, they have been discontinued to make room for the D-Lux 4. I have no idea why Leica AG did this because for a P&S camera for the robot platform, the D-Lux 3 is superior to the D-Lux 4 and as we shall see, this stitched panorama phenomena is the future of photography or at least, a big chunk of it.

    ok.got it. mixed the Leica and Panasonic model numbering. But even with a 112mm its astonishing in detail.

    This was taken with a Leica D-Lux 3 having a 4x zoom, which is about 112mm. The 60mm max that you refer to is the new Panasonic model which the Leica D-Lux 4 has the same characteristics. The new model(s) cannot accomplish anything like what the Leica D-Lux 3 can because the newer models do not have the same focal length range.

    How did you manage this with the LX3 having a max tele of 60mm ? You use an extender ? I have a LX3 as well, but everyone is saying there is no extender yet (as for the LX2).

    The depth of field is pretty amazing. I do not believe I could get anything like this using my DSLR, using a shutter speed of 1/160th second.
