360 Indoor/Outdoor Panos. Does ANYONE know ANYTHING...
« on: May 04, 2013, 11:03:35 PM »
Hello all,

I'm trying to find anyone who knows anything about producing several indoor and outdoor panoramas for a Dude Ranch here in Tulsa. I know how to create them in photoshop CS5, however, I have no clue when it comes to how to create a flash, java, silverlight, etc file to store them in so they can put the file on their website. The idea is that they can have a 360 degree view of Cabin 1, 2, etc.

Does anyone know of a method of doing this before I take the gig? I'll likely just use the 17-40 (or 16-35 ii if I upgrade by then) on a 5Dii, though I'll be renting the 8-15 fisheye for a fun wedding in early June and can toy with that if it is recommended.

Thank you, thank you, thank you,
-Tabor

I can't think why one would want to use a wide angle lens with it's native, curvature distortion. What then? Correct the curvature of each image in post, then stitch them together? Sounds like a lot of work.

I'd think to shoot more frames with a more natural perspective, such as a 40 mm or 50 mm, stitching those together would allow for a more natural perspective, the multiple frames get you the wide viewing angle natural to a panorama.
 
Anyway, here's a goggly thing  https://www.google.com/#hl=en&gs_rn=12&gs_ri=psy-ab&gs_mss=flash%20panorama%20s&tok=l1f0fIKd4INOA_vYH3q_hg&cp=23&gs_id=1dd&xhr=t&q=flash+panorama+software&es_nrs=true&pf=p&safe=off&sclient=psy-ab&oq=flash+panorama+software&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45960087,d.aWc&fp=a53dde7358203403&biw=1280&bih=850
Looks like a lot of options right there.

Hey tolusina,

I just assumed the 17-40 would be the best option since it's what I have used several times before. I am interested in experimenting with a different set up as you've suggested, and will likely first try the 35L. Thank you very very much for your input. I'm looking into your link now.

Thank you again,
-Tabor

Panoramic tripod head (I use a Nodal Ninja).  Kolor Autopano Pro for stitching.  KRPano for viewing.  Lots of RAM and processor power.

Use whichever lens gives you the detail level you want.  I shoot with anything from 10mm to 58mm.  I'd shoot longer, but my rotator doesn't go below 10-degrees.
