Sanctuary of the Sun by DimensionSeven Sanctuary of the Sun by DimensionSeven
2009.07.09, Magyarhertelend, Hungary.

This is my first real try on panorama shooting. It was shot from a newly erected lookout tower called Napszentély ('Sanctuary of the Sun' in English), under very lucky lighting conditions. Stitched from 4 horizontal shots (each at 13mm) using PTGui Pro 8.02.

The shots were done freehand, I didn't mean them serious, just to check the exposure and the filter position. But by the time I set up the tripod, switched the polarizer on my normal zoom to the Cokin ND gradient and changed the lenses, the sun got covered by the huge cloud formation seen here. Half an hour later it started to rain as well. I was disappointed that I missed the best time, but when I saw how well PTGui handled the 13mm files, well... I cheered up! :D

Thanks to =realityDream for his useful tips on PTGui!

Nikon D80 - Sigma 10-20 @ 13mm - f/11 - 1/100 - iso 100 - Cokin P120 - NEF - Capture NX 1.2 (evened the white balance of each shot manually) - PTGui Pro 8.02 - PS/CS2

Not really. It's good for stitching telephotos, but it can't really handle distortion. PTGui did a far superior job.

Köszi a tippet! Most értem haza Ausztriából egy csomó szabadkézi infrapanorámával, meglátjuk elég lesz-e hozzá a PTGui.

HDR? Nem élek vele. :)
Ellenben a panorámák sokat ettek. És csak 1-2 GB kártyákat használok, de szerencsére volt nálunk laptop is... :phew:

igen, a 40D-nek megfelelő D200 kistesóját, a D80-at nyűvöm már 3 éve. Meg egy infrásított D50-et. De majd lesz infrás D90 a D50 helyett a télen (kell az átfutási idő, és az infrának a tél a holtideje), 12 MP, live view, contrast detect AF, meg ilyenek.

huh, hat az maceras lehet, gondolom 10MB/kep ... nekem leginkabb az volt a gondom, hogy irto lassan irt az 1GBos kartyam. Aztan bementem egy szamitogepes szakuzletbe, elkertem a leggyorsabb CF kartyat, valami 233x sebessegu, elkezdtem a folyamatos kepfelvetelt, es azota az 1GBos kartyat csak akkor hasznalom, ha a 8GB tele van (sosem volt meg ilyen), vagy ha epp valami hulyeseget csinaltam a 8GBossal (1x sikerult olyat torolnom, amit nem kellett volna - a legjobbakkal is megesik, de sikerult visszavarazsolni :P) Az egesz 6e penzembe fajt. Bar gondolom Neked sokkal jobb geped is van (40D-nel kezdheted es 5D-nel vagy esetleg meg magasabban levo 1D-nel fejezed be), es nagyon nincs is szukseged a folyamatos gyors kepfelvetelre a termeszetfotoknal. Csak csodalkozom hogy volt kedved 20 kartyat magaddal vinni... :D Persze biztonsagosabb igy, mert ha egy elvesz, van meg 19 masik. De a sok csereben nagyobb a valoszinusege is annak, hogy elkallodik.

Mindenesetre mar nagyon varom a kepeket :)

Nem a cserével van gond, hanem mert léteznek hibás kártyák. Nekem is volt, pedig Kingston volt, ami nem noname. És nem mindegy hogy 7 GB-nyi ké;p veszik el, vagy csak 1.
