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 Steps 1Find the rotation/pivot point by doing the test described in the External Link below. 14 Ad Tips. Forum In ultima vreme m-am preocupat putin de un tip al fotografiei de peisaj-cea in format panoramic.


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.

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. Approach 1: Custom made panohead using aluminum profiles.

This version is home-made and therefore named the "Tim Tailor-Head" ;-) This head allows the 360° panning and a tilt of approx. 80° to take the zenith shot. No adjustments for other camera/lens-combinations are possible. The tripod connector is equipped with a Novoflex MiniConnect MR for quick setup. Setup: ~90 sec. for unfolding the head an attaching the camera (3 screws need to be tightened: 1 for the stand, 1 for the arm and the camera screw) Dimensions (folded): 165x60x40 mm without panorama plate.

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.
