This is the same scene that I captured at share.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=8664 (only it's a bit colder outside and the boats have come out of the water). The earlier panorama was shot on September 6, 2008 while this one was shot on January 20, 2009. The position of the camera for this shot was roughly 40 feet due North of the camera position used in the earlier shot (the icy conditions made it dangerous and impractical to set up the camera in the same position that it was originally set up in for the September shot).

This panorama has a much higher resolution (compared with the earlier shot) because it was taken with a Canon SX100IS camera (which features a 10X optical zoom), whereas the September panorama was taken with a Canon SD870IS with a maximum optical zoom of 3.8X (and a correspondingly smaller effective focal length - roughly 105 mm equivalent vs. the 363 mm equivalent on the SX100IS - both cameras feature an 8 megapixel sensor). I had some technical problems (mainly because for some reason the manual focus adjustment did not 'stick', so each photo was shot with autofocus). The outside temperature was roughly 20 degrees F at the time when I shot the panorama. The gigapan unit seemed to be working OK, as did the Canon camera. When I shot a second panorama, though, it appeared that the camera's auto focus mechanism had slowed down considerably, which was probably due to a combination of the cold temperature and the failing light (as the sun had set by then).
