    Arrow Huge Panorama of Tokyo, Japan

    http://digitalarts.mindsocket.com.au/tokyo_pano/

    The 84 images (14x6) for this panorama were shot from a Tokyo hotel room in March 2006.
    The camera used was a Canon 20D with a 17-85mm EF-S lens @ 85mm, and the images were stitched and post-processed using Hugin, autopano-sift, Nona and The GIMP. This scaled down version is 13000x5000 pixels.
    At first I thought, this was a crap link. The image looked too small to be a "huge panorama" until I started to zoom in. Then I realized how large it truly is. Take a look at raw Tokyo.

    Not easy to do you know, it requires taking the shots carefully then stiching it. I have done a wider but less deep panaroma of my city at night though. Too big to upload.

    I thought it was amazing. It must have taken quite a bit of time to set it up, get the perfect shots (my question is how does the photographer deal with the sun changing and lighting and all of that?)...

    i wonder if its possible to make a mechanical tripod... ie. electric stepper motor to rotate and shift downwards... like a type-writer... so u take a photo... click next, the tripod moves, then take next photo etc etc... should only take 90 seconds or however long to take a snaphot and move the camera

    Actually it done using either a tripod or it can be done hand-held. You take the shots you want in sucession but not take them at the widest angle you camera has; you want to keep detail. Then you go over to photoshop and patch up the photos manually by putting them all as layers into one file, compare the contrast, colours and lighting of each layer, select ther best layer ann then manipulate the other layers to look the same. Patch it up side by side by rotating and turning as needed to line the images up, touch it up and viola!



    Ok, I resized my panaroma and uploaded it for viewing. Its just a panaroma of Singapore City taken from the Benjamin Shears Bridge. To the left is Marina Bay and to the right is the Esplanade. I didn't fix the errors in the pic like lens flare and slighty warped horizon. Not too good a panaroma but my first sucessful one.

    Sorry for a long reply interval, I just left for Korea for 9 days on the 4th and just returned.

    I used a Canon 30D and with their EF-S 18-55mm kit lens.
