I really like to make panorama images, I have done that for many years more or less. I did a lot in 2008 and used different programs to stitch panoramas. But after changing computers and hard drives I sadly lost a lot off images, sadly becase Photosynth is making rely good panoramas from my images!
Now I mostly use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 camera on free hand. But I'm planning to construct and make a pano head soon...
I live in the middle of Sweden!
