Shot of Half Dome from the far side of Mirror Lake, Yosemite National Park, California
If you had not used the default projection, and
instead in Options clicked 'Mercator', the
top half of the picture wouldn't be so
distorted. The default Equarectangular projection
doesn't work too well in Yosemite because
everything is either way above you, or way below
Regarding SX1 versus SX10... I've heard that
the SX10 actually does slightly better at stills,
so video would be the only reason to go for the
SX1. As far as a GigaPanning camera, it seems to
work well, I've taken a few gigapans with no
issues. The large zoom is why I bought it. Of
course it only works with the newer larger
GigaPan. In hindsight I may have gone for the SX10
and a separate video camera... with the SX1 for
video you either get 1080p or 640x480... and with
1080p you can only take a 2 minute video and have
it small enough to upload to youtube... I might
have preferred 720p in the end.
What do you think of that Canon SX1 IS as a
GigaPanning camera? I'm very pleased with my
Canon SX10 IS, but am also curious whether
there's any reason (besides the video) to
"upgrade" to the SX1 IS.
