Description

This is my first attempt at taking a macropanorama with multiple focal planes. I used the "Last Panorama" function on the GigaPan unit to retake the same field, but only after selecting another focal plane. I then used Helicon Focus software to render each frame, then stitched the panorama from the rendered frames with increased depth of field. This technique needs some work - I didn't get enough overlap between focal planes, so that's one area for improvement. I'll publish a detailed description of my technique on the GigaPan Forum once I work out the fine details.

    Cheers Illah. Now why did it only take me 3 months to discover that URL? :-)

    I understand why it the forum is beta-owners only, but it seems a shame to exclude everyone else who has experience of taking panoramas and wants to contribute to the project. Couldn't there be a separate forum for "outsiders"?

    Yes-- as part of the Beta process we have the Gigapan-taking individuals sharing hints and experiences with each-other.

    You refer to 'the gigapan forum'. Is this something that is only open to people with the gigapan unit? I ask because I have been looking for a forum with gigapan people without success. I don't have a unit myself. gigapannner@kilgore.demon.co  Will
open in a new tab or window.uk

    Illah, How about fresh Ahi, Mahi, or Aku?

    Very cool. Now if you just had a piece of fresh brook trout in the picture too, you would have pretty much my optimal dinner on display.
