Canon EOS 500D


The Esplanade is a premier theatre for performing arts in Singapore. It sits on the edge of the Marina Bay, a man made reservoir. It is separated from the sea by the Marina Barrage.

Paranoma was taken with a Canon 500D. Pretty heavy for the Epic. That causes problem when taking night shots due to the vibrations. Had problems when wind was blowing as the camera is sitting unsteadily on the arm of the Epic device. Some parts of the picture of the picture did not turn out clear due to the vibrations. Used a mutl-shutter mode. 1st click is to turn up the mirror which also allows vibration due to movement of arm to settle down. 2nd click then takes the shot.

Appreciate comments on how to improve.

    Thanks for the encouraging comments and advice. Yes canon has a setting where there is a 2 second delay after taking a shot. Might do that or just extend the time interval between shots by another 2 seconds. :-)

    Very nice panorama! I love it. This shows what you can do with a larger sensor that will have a lower pixel density and noise. Also the DSLR lenses are often much better. I believe that you can also make the camera wait two seconds and add that to the time per pic. I will need to check the manual after downloading it from the Canon website. When you are not in the city you can bring a small tent which can help depending upon the type of wind. I would never try that in the city though.
