Excellent!  Thanks for the tips!  I'll play with the options suggested for stitching and see if I can get better results from photoshop before I move on and try Autopano Giga.  Now that I know how easy the stitching is, I'll be more willing to play with it, as long as I can make it look right.

if you try Autopano Giga.... take care that your Images have 20-30% overlap. below 20% autopano will have Problems to find enough good control Points for a perfect result. if the neighbor Images have similar textures like sky, water, sand etc than manually adding control Points can help. For big panos with hundrets of Image positions it can be a stupid underpinned by senseless plan to move the Image to c orrect Position.... than a panoramic head like merlin, panoneed (which can write with addon tool XML logs files with papywizard compatible Format), VR Drive2 Comes with own XML file Format, Clauss Radeon also Comes with own XML fileformat, gigapan too.... and all mentioned XML files created can be imported in autopano giga. papywizard is a Software availabel for mac and pc and some mobiles too with Bluetooth you can drive your merlin head. the papywizard Software creates also autopano compatible XML files.
the XML files wonder magix is the exaxt Image poisiton is recorded in and the autopano giga can place all Images to correct Position, even if no single control Point can be found between the Images.

I'm available on kolor.com/Forum with same nicname...

Liebe Gruesse,

EOS 5D Mark II
Introduced November 2008

...41 months...

EOS 5D Mark III
Introduced March 2012

...41 months would be...

EOS 5D Mark IV
around August 2014

PowerShot / Re: SX50 outperforming 5DIII +100-400mm
« on: April 04, 2013, 07:15:55 PM »
So please explain how that is "outperforming" it?

Canon can only take Images from now.
the SX50 can predict exactly 365 days...  :o

I use it. But I had to learn not to turn the sliders to max possible...
In general I do apply the filters I personally can achieve satisfactory results.
Than I take a pause of 1-2 hours and than I review my result ... to conclude in reducing most filters by 50% or even more.

Canon General / Re: Which eye do you shoot with?
« on: March 14, 2013, 10:31:35 AM »
left handed, right eye dominant. using the right eye for VF with left eye open. the grip of my cam is on right side so I cant imagine doing the same the other ways round, because then the grip with my Hand is closer to my nose too.... ;)

NR on multiple files:
"PhotoAcute Studio processes sets of photographs taken in continuous mode to produce high-resolution, low-noise pictures that (...)" (source: welcome Screen after starting demo)
and Oloneo Photo Engine also does allow NR on multiple imput files.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Ds mark iii????
« on: March 12, 2013, 08:18:01 AM »
I just bought one to go with my 5DMk3. (I had a 5DMk2, too, as backup which I just sold.) I wanted a low-ISO tank-like machine. Do some reading on the web: See the comparison files offered by www.imaging-resource.com, because they have shot the same setup with many cameras, so I could look at a full-size file of a still life with both 5DMk3 and 1Ds-Mk3. The older camera clear winner at ISO200.

Bought a body for 2300 delivered way out here in the Pacific. Seemed fair. My experience in the last two weeks is good but for two things, one I knew about and the other a bummer. The noise picks up fast at and above ISO400 -- in the shadows. ETTR is really helpful with this sensor. The bummer I have written in a nearby thread about an error 30 message when using the 1Ds with LiveView. I think these cameras have a high rate of issues with LiveView. I admit I am reading between the lines here but the Canon tech guy asked me right away, "Were you using LiveView?" So my copy may be $300 more. That's taking the cost to the same as a low cost or refurb 5DMk3. Some people never have an issue with this camera. I did. "Sample of one" here. And the guy who sold it to me, I know, never used it with tethered LiveView.

Be aware that the focus is not lightning fast... as someone with a not-so-good copy of 5DMk3 I wanted good focus. But at least it always focuses.

On balnce, I may feel the experiment still came out OK. I may never see the error again if I avoid live view. But that's one task that I wanted the camera to do.

if you look at following link: http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/eos1dsm3/firmware-e.html
it rather Looks like error 30 is related to "Malfunctions related to the shutter have been detected."

+1 for Win7 Prof.Edition on a 64bit PC.
Win8 is only of interest if you plan to buy a touchscreen so you can handle your PC with fingertips like an tablet PC or your mobile phone. Win8 comes with 2 surfaces... the new one for the fingertips and the one more or less unchanged from Win7. LR,PS,PSE or other software will never be used in the fingertipps surface, there only seperatley programmed "Apps" like on mobile phones will run.

if you feel to need the fastboot feature from win8 you can install your win7 on a SSD disc (or SSD disc RAID1) so booting will also be faster than with normal harddrive.
