I have used Canon 5D Mark II with EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS II at 200mm and f/8. The total number of photos is 363. I have used Manfrotto 303SPH panoramic head to keep the 5 degree movement. I am glad that you like the photos, it is the reason why I have this hobby.

What camera do you use to take these? Your panoramas are amazing! I've never even heard of a gigapixel until I found your panoramas. Great job.

The result is fantastic Martin. Great to see all the great pnos you have been uploading recently. We're going to feature your work on our Home page next week I think. Follow @Photosynth to hear when it happens.

Great pano, Mattu. Impressive!

Thanks Thomas. Totally agree with you. These images work really well at ski areas. Still so much potential to do cool stuff here - e.g. overlay run names, tag yourself, overlay videos, ...

Gorgeous GigaPixel, MattU! A great example of what ski resorts and other large recreation properties can and should do.

Thanks everyone. @Larry_R ICE took about 2 hours to stitch, Photoshop then takes 1/2 hour to load. @RELE this was 300mm @AngelesCrest the Gigapan shoots in columns. This was 1200 images shot in RAW (no HDR). I did tweak the white point and exposure for a lot of them before stitching because the camera was underexposing the snow, making a lot of the inputs grayish.

2 Hours shooting! Wow. Q: Does it shoot in rows or columns? It seems columns would be better for changing light conditions. Q: Was this HDR or single shot? Very nice, thanks!

Thanks Mister, hope to meet up someday. What are you using for a head. I have a Manfrotto 303SPH and a handful of Canon 40D's.

I will run through the raw images again and check... 5DmkII. I also suspect filter reflection, it tends to have that greenish tint.

AngelesCrest (Over 1 year ago)
Yea, at 0.2Gpixel, 100mm would be about right. I think the filter is most likely the place to start, but what bothers me is it seems to be broken in two color bands, and is inverted (as seen in the blue ghost of the (57?) freeway over the water tanks. So it might be a reflection off the front element onto the filter. I think the low angle (elevation) might add to the strength of the effect as well. I've largely stopped using filters in digital, so this is something I would find hard to replicate. So if you find out more, I'd be glad to hear about it... PS: The noise level looks fine, what body were you using?

garretbaquet (Over 1 year ago)
Correction 100mm. Another possibility for any noise would be Sensor heat from the long exposures... Your thoughts?

garretbaquet (Over 1 year ago)
Possible answer: The vertical light areas are likely from lens vignetting... I am pretty sure that I used lens correction... but it's the first time I have ever used this lens 400mm Canon at 400mm... haven't had time to calibrate any settings. Since it wasn't my lens, I left the u/v filter on it... have noticed that sometimes filters reflect bright spots back through the lens. Maybe boosted the noise a bit much recovering shadow detail. :) 30 second exposure f6.3 ISO 100
