Gigapan Beta2 with Canon S5-IS


Hanauma Bay is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island of O`ahu, Hawai`i. I took this panorama with the initial beta model GigaPan unit, and a 8 megapixel Canon S5-IS P&S camera. With a 12x optical zoom, and a 1.5x tele-extender, the effective focal length is approximately 650 mm.
Wave movement and people movement result in some interesting, often fun, stitching results.
Can you find the shovel on the beach, or the man hiking on the far slope of the bay? The hiker is shown in at least 3 locations.

    Wow! At first I thought you reshot this Gigapan on a less cloudy day, but then I noticed that you got everyone to pose in exactly the same places, too! Nice job of cleaning up the exposure differences. That must have been a monumental effort. I can't wait to see how you realign the waves in version #3. :-P
