It's a cast acrylic. The stuff they make counter tops out of. It's actually quite hard and strong but very machinable. How to Build a Panoramic Tripod Head wikiHow. Edit Article Edited by Sondra C, Nicole Willson, Jack Herrick, Krystle and 10 others There’s some amazing software out there for panoramic photography.

How to Build a Panoramic Tripod Head wikiHow

Various software packages warp, stitch and blend sequences of photos so that they (ideally) look like one big, high-resolution, panoramic shot. However, getting these shots to turn out perfectly isn’t easy when handholding your camera or using a normal tripod, especially when some parts of the image are fairly close to the lens. Panoramic tripods can cost hundreds of dollars, but making your own isn't that hard. Ad. Forum nikonisti.ro. In ultima vreme m-am preocupat putin de un tip al fotografiei de peisaj-cea in format panoramic.

Forum nikonisti.ro

Genul peisajului este putin cazut in desuet in ultima vreme insa eu cred ca este foarte greu de realizat datorita dificultatii de a realiza fotografii bune si a locatiilor in care este greu de ajuns-mai ales la o anumita ora speciala din zi (apus sau rasarit), anotimp etc. In ceea ce priveste modul in care se realizeaza o fotografie panoramica (cilindrica sau sferica), modul in care ea se asambleaza din partile componente (imaginile capturate) si mai ales tehnica de vizare va recomand articolele de la adresa: gasiti un foarte bun si complet tutorial cu privire la subiectul in cauza.

Milan Knížek. Slepování jednotlivých snímků do sférického panorama často komplikuje tzv. paralaxa, kdy při otáčení fotoaparátu objekt v popředí mění svoji pozici vůči objektu v pozadí.

Milan Knížek

To je způsobeno tím, že fotoaparát má osu otáčení (např. stativový šroub) jinde než je tzv. bod nacházející se ve středu vstupní pupily objektivu.Centrální bod vstupní pupily objektivu je obvykle zaměňován s tzv. nodálním bodem, což je ovšem něco trochu jiného (nehledě na to, že nodální body jsou v případě běžných objektivů dva – viz Nodal point dle Wikipedie). Carl von Einem. John McAllister. The purpose of a pano head is to: Enable the optical axis of a camera and lens system, mounted within the pano head, to be directed anywhere within the sphere of view - with a constant PoV.Allow for the correction of potential parallax errors by enabling the camera to travel parallel and perpendicular to the optical axis - and make other adjustments, so that the camera/lens PoV, the panning axis and the pitch axis coincide to best practical effect.Provide a reliable frame of reference and sufficient datum for setup and calibration.

The most up to date information will be in the PDF file available for download. The full text and pictures for this page can be downloaded as a PDF file HERE This paper describes the process of building a universal panorama bracket. The intention is to describe the process I used rather than provide complete step by step instructions because others may not have access to the tools that were used and may have to select different strategies for making the parts or simply use these ideas for building their own designs. This bracket is designed to hold basically any camera and rotate it about the nodal point in the horizontal and vertical planes. Nodal Samurai. Sean Parkin. Seamless panoramic pictures, whether the immersive 360° virtual reality type or otherwise, require a way of rotating the camera about the point of zero parallax within the lens, often called its nodal point (or entrance pupil, whatever etc.).

For panoramas that include lots of foreground this is critical, and is achieved with a panoramic tripod head (panohead), which allows smooth pan and reproducible tilt motions. There are several commercially available panoheads but they are either very expensive or look cheap and flimsy. There are also a few do-it-yourself panoheads described on the web.

Although many of these may work well enough, most look pretty amateurish and the wooden ones seem way too bulky. Most homebuilt heads either rely on the tripod itself for rotation or have only rudimentary rotation mechanisms. I decided to build my own from scratch. This panohead is easy to disassemble - the exploded view below shows all the parts: Peter Nyfeler. Bernhard Vogl. Mike Runge. Erik Krause. Heliar VR. 15mm Rectilinear LensIt has long been established that high resolution cylindrical panoramas with large horizontal dimensions (> 5000 pixels) can be created from single rows of images using stitching software like Apple's QTVRAS.

Using large focal lengths results in high resolution, and stitching is usually fast and accurate. It turns out that multirow stitching, which is required for spherical/cubic panoramas, is infinitely more complex, and requires adjustments of many more parameters. This explains why only few software solutions are available for this kind of task.

It is also more sensitive to slight misalignments, and finally, photographing the source images requires bulky and expensive equipment. For this reason most spherical images are made using fisheye lenses which, however, are limited in resolution. 6 horizontal images (at pan angles 0°, 60°, 120°, 180°, 240°, 300°) 2 images vertically up (at pan angle 0° and 90°) 2 images vertically down (at pan angle 0° and 90°)
