Kilgore661's GigaPans: Zoom Baby, Zoom (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/9802/) and Zoom Baby, Zoom - Revisited (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/63157/) motivated me to return to retake one of my more popular panoramas. There are others on gigapan.org that take *high* altitude panoramas versus panoramas taken from mountain tops, one of which is Tom Nelson (atypical is www.gigapan.org/gigapans/29680/ and his masterpiece: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/46074/) ... thanks to all for the continual inspiration.
The original version, www.gigapan.org/gigapans/25935/, was taken with a Canon SX110 (a $100 camera) and this newest pano was taken with a Nikon D7000 ($1200 camera) and the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 ($2000 lens). The origanal (0.33 gigapixel) was stitched from 44 photos and this most recent version (0.78 gigapixel) was stitched from 63 photos; however, it covers a larger horizontal angle (field of view).
It is my belief that both cameras are excellent for what they are designed to do; however, for a hand-held panorama project, the Canon SX110 may be a bit better when one considers weight and price. The main difference, as an example, can be observed when one compares the clarity of the antenna on top of the downtown buildings.
The hand-held panorama was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher software. Additional information can be seen in Stitcher Notes.
