Manfrotto 303 SPH QTVR


4 Rows x 36 x 3 Shot Brackets on Canon 7D with 50 F1.4 Lens

This was my first real test shooting a multi row 360 with the 7D/50mm on my pano head. Just in the park next door.

The HDR is just for fun. Overdone to the max really!

This is not the full sized pano as I had some focus issues (which popped up again on the Southbank Crown pano) and the whole pano was soft. I need to figure out why the manual focus is drifting after I set it with live view.

Image Size = 23000 x 3856 = 85 Megapixels
(full size would have been around .9 Gigapixels)

    You can thank my overdone HDR for that :)

    I'm pretty sure I just touched it a bit when pointing the camera down for the first row. It seems to be very sensitive even in manual focus as the 50mm F1.4 doesn't have a true manual control on it. It is more of a fly by wire sort of thing. I'm now testing with a full manual 45mm TS-E lens and have not had this happen to me yet.

    Many Canons have a "safety focus" feature that is supposed to sharpen focus even in manual mode. This does not always work as desired, and that feature may be turned off. That could be cause of the issue that you describe.
