We need Saskia more than ever to hold back the bear market ... today, the market is going south ... we need help!

Taken with my new iPhone 4S and is a bit better than the first attempt, although there is a slight boo-boo, which was my fault in not being more aware of the correct elevation throughout the panorama.

As always, this panorama was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher; therefore, the stitcher notes, which can be seen, are invaluable.

Also, a plug for looking at this panorama via the Google Earth utility can be, for those that like to see 360-degree panoramas, breathtaking.

    The only difficulty that I have found in the few iPhone GigaPans that I have taken is simply maintaining a constant axis for if one inadvertently tilts the phone ever so slightly, then the 360 won't stitch properly. There is a feature in camera options, which allows the user to have grid lines as an aid to take photos and I am learning to use that feature.

    I do indeed mean that guy. I was thinking that an iPhone does not look like a camera used by a professional photographer and you're not using a tripod so there's no reason for any security people to think you are anything other than a tourist taking snaps to show to the family. I imagine museums with a major exhibit will worry about anyone taking photos because of copyright issues. But I think if I had an iPhone I'd be taking mini-gigapans of here, there and everywhere :-)

    You must mean this guy: gigapan.org/gigapans/29037/snapshot s/90593/ and the train driver who got the police on me when I was taking the GigaPan of homeless people lined up for food: gigapan.org/gigapans/29794/snapshot s/91032/ Regarding the other part of your comment: it may be difficult to take a 360 inside of a museum having a major, major exhibit, but I am fearless and may try this next week.

    This pano reminds me of the hassle you had with security guards and your gigapan robot. It occurs to me that you could take gigapans with your iPhone more or less anywhere you wanted?
