I've done a search but can't find an answer to this question.
I'm going to try my first panoramas in a nice landscape area soon.
I understand the technique for taking the pictures ok.
Let's say I take 5 images in horizontal format to be stitched together. I'll probably be using Canon's Photostitch software.
How do you know what will be lost from the top and bottom of each of the 5 images when they are stitched together? Or can this be specified by the user?
I'm not talking about the areas of overlap that are needed, but the area at the top and bottom of each picture that will go in order to produce the long thin panorama.
I want to make sure I don't lose something that is integral to the composition.
I hope this makes sense!
Can you post a snap of the bottom of the camera showing the scuff? One thing you might consider is attaching the BR to a Wimberly P5 generic Arca Swiss plate, that may keep the connectors farther from the camera body.
Secondly, leaking LCD is very disappointing. That just reflects the deterioration of Canon's workmanship or quality control. For those who understand how Canon's cameras were put together, can you please shed some light on what type of "countermeasures" would be deployed to fix the issue? I think it would require significant work to get to the part between the LCD and the sensor. I am just not 100% confident about the skills of the technicians at the Canon service center. I suggest that if the issue does not bother you, just go out and take more photos. If it does, return it now and wait for a few months to get a new one.

This kind of pisses me off. Not because I feel like I got a defective camera or that I even think this issue would really affect me. I'm pissed off because I will now have to decide if I want to be without my camera while it is getting an updated LCD cover or if I want to ignore the recall and deal with whatever the consequences of that are...
If you're wanting to run the SD card as a parallel back-up, I guess this doesn't help, but why not shoot just RAW to the CF card and just JPEG to the EyeFi card?
I was actually playing with the C1, C2, C3 settings last night and I thought that you could tie the recording scheme to them, but they are separated out and I can see pluses and minuses both for that decision.
Thanks, I'll read them.
