Indeed the front page is the slowest front page I regularly read. On my notebook it is as slow as on my Desktop PC. Interestingly the effect does not change when I am abroad with my notebook.

It's in fact an extraction from a 360x180 degrees Panorama (found here: http://www.michael-goericke.de/pano/museum/zkm)

Lenses / Re: Help with 360º Panoramas

The heads from Manfrotto and Novoflex are of very high quality. I use the NN4 and R1 from NodalNinja. They are cheaper and I don't compromise about the quality.

Lenses / Re: Help with 360º Panoramas
« on: January 17, 2013, 12:41:54 PM »
Thanks, the lens I'm talking about is the Sigma AF 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Fisheye. So if I understand correctly,  I can make 360º panos with a single row of 6 vertical shots, not needing to make two more rows of images rotatin up and down.

Do you have an example of a 360º pano with your lens at 15mm on a fullframe?

I do a lot of interactive spheres. Years ago I started with the 15 mm fisheye. Yes, you need 6 vertical shot, one nadir, one zenit for a sphere. There is no need to tilt the lens, no need for a second row.

Be aware you carefully need to adjust the NPP (no paralax point).

For almost 3 years I used the Spyder 3 until I noticed that the calibration always creates some degree of pink (oon two different monitors). After some research it turned out that the Spyder 3 has a general problem: the build in color filters change their color over time. The problem is well known to DataColor. That's why they introduced the Spyder 4.

Right before the introduction of the Spyder 4 I switched to the i1Display. I find both software ok, both have pros and cons. I like the X-Rite a bit more, it gives me a bit more control over the measurement (e.g. how many colors to test). When measuring and setting the RGB values of the monitor X-Rite makes my life easier compared to DataColor. X-Rite continuesly measures the values (very fast) while I need to press the Measure button in the DataColor software for each measurement (which takes a while).

Maybee am I misunderstanding something here. I was asking how you made the picture in the link (180x360). I might be the you answered on. How did you do it, which program. I have cs5 extended. Will that to this?

As mentioned I take 4 shots every 90 degrees at 12 mm plus nadir. I use PTGui to stitch them together. Last step is to convert the picture into flash (which I use krpano for).

To answer your question, no cs5 is not able to handle fisheye images. The stitching capabilities of cs5 are very limited.

Mike how you like the 8-15??

I like that lens VERY much. It is very solid built, it feels good, it's an "L" type lens as it should be. I used the 15 mm prime before and I don't see much of a different to the 8-15 regarding image quality.

Wow! That was awsome. How many rounds did you do the 360? I have used the 8-15 and one round would not be enough...?

I'm not sure whether I understand your question right. With the 8-15 set to 12 mm 4 pictures plus 1 nadir are needed. In this special case I shot 5 exposures per picture (25 overall) for the HDR panorama to compensate the contrast.

May I add here a full 360x180 panorama? It's shot using the 5dIII and the 8-15mm. You'll find the interactive version of the sphere here

Picture taken at a live concert at ISO 12800 (more from the concert under http://www.michael-goericke.de/bands/call-her-sugar/prinzenbar).

I also shot a 360 degrees interactive sphere with the same settings: http://www.michael-goericke.de/pano/musik/sugar3
