These photosynths are mostly made by my garage-built robotic panorama heads. They run off an Arduino and are sometimes controlled by a PC through a Powershell script or C# program.

The cameras I've used are a Canon G10, G12, a Sigma DP1, SD14, SD15 and on some of the earlier ones, an Olympus E-420.

Just started with this and the possibilities are amazing.

I'm surprised that you haven't been using structured panos. The structured pano dialog supports both "Serpentine" and "Zigzag". The start at the bottom of every column method that you describe is what we call "Zigzag". So, you should be able to use the current structured workflow?

Nice! Very sharp and clear image!

I couldn't get it to work on this one either but think I know why. I was lazy in my pan/tilt algorithm. The robot takes images in columns, and each column starts from the bottom. I didn't program it to efficiently use a "serpentine" method. So I need to do that. Then I think the structured pano will work for me.

Yes, I just posted another one of the playground next to Zaftigs which I think you'll instantly recognize. I saw your photos of Fenway. My cousin lives there (or used to). My sister lives in Brookline. Sorry these panos aren't better. Having problems with my garage built gear.

Thanks Mattu. I'm pretty sure, if it is less than 2-inches, and molded in plastic, Mary has it at her store! As you can see, the lights confuse the autofocus. I need to try setting my focus manually in the future and see how that works. I think in the future most stores will have panoramas like this. Yan view at night and then have them send you your snake in the morning ;)

I'm really enjoying your photos. This one in particular is a lot of fun to explore. I found a mini wooden snake for $2 - seems like a good deal.
