First gigapan with my new canon g10. Not really happy about the focus, but this is a picture made up from 80 sub images

Hi Ian, It looks like you have camera motion, not
focus problems. Set the G10 to maximum zoom, image
stabilization OFF, AF Frame = AiAF, exposure
mode=Manual. Press the Menu button, go to the
camera symbol and choose Save Settings. Press the
FUNC/SET button and select either C1 or C2. Now
when you select C1 or C2 on the exposure mode
dial, the camera will go to maximum zoom and do
all the other things you've set. This will be
your GigaPan setting. In particular, it appears
that image stabilization actually causes blur as
the camera takes a bit of time to stabilize after
it's moved to a new location. See the comments
on my image gigapan.org/gigapans/24538/ for
more on this. In GigaPan Options/Delay Time use
about 1.8 seconds' delay for sunlit exposures
and around 3 seconds for cloudy conditions.
There's a setting for continuous press of the
shutter release pusher and you should use that.
Try that and see if your pictures don't
improve. Send me a message if you need more help.
