AutoStitch works from unordered collections of images, automatically finding matches between images using the SIFT algorithm. It then robustly aligns all images and uses advanced blending algorithms to form seamless panoramas (see below). For more details, see our research papers. 25 of 57 images aligned All 57 images aligned Final Result Note: Mobile versions of AutoStitch are developed by Cloudburst Research. AutoStitch is available to license from the University of British Columbia. AutoStitch is now available in the following commercial products: Autopano Pro (Windows, Mac, Linux) Serif PanoramaPlus (Windows) Calico (Mac) The University of British Columbia has also granted a commercial license to Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), a Lucasfilm Ltd. company, to use AutoStitch software to produce panoramas for film production. The version of AutoStitch on this website is a demo only. Q: What projection method does AutoStitch use?

Stitching programs vary wildly in their usability and quality of finished image. I prefer the one Canon gives away for free with every digital camera, even their cheapest. Most other software is impossible to figure out, while others slop together images without predistorting or mating them properly. Software that gets these two things right solves 90% of the problem. You can't simply "stitch" together images. The software needs to know how much angle the shots include so it can do this distortion correctly. Unfortunately many panoramic utilities simply stitch together images without predistorting (bending) them first. The Final 10%

Your Weight on Other Worlds Ever wonder what you might weigh on Mars or The Moon? Here's your chance to find out. <div class="js-required"><hr> This Page requires a Javascript capable browser <hr></div> Fill in your weight below in the space indicated. You can enter your weight in any unit you wish. Click on the "Calculate" button. Mass and Weight Before we get into the subject of gravity and how it acts, it's important to understand the difference between weight and mass. We often use the terms "mass" and "weight" interchangeably in our daily speech, but to an astronomer or a physicist they are completely different things. Weight is an entirely different thing. If you are in a spaceship far between the stars and you put a scale underneath you, the scale would read zero. The Relationship Between Gravity and Mass and Distance As stated above, your weight is a measure of the pull of gravity between you and the body you are standing on. The two "M's" on top are your mass and the planet's mass. Isaac Newton

Motion Photography - Explore Photography (UK) Author: J.A.J Aaronson - Updated: 5 October 2010| Comment One of the conundrums that has faced photographers since the very inception of the medium has been attempting to work out how to effectively capture movement. The potential ways in which you could go about capturing motion are manifold; one need only look at a selection of well-known photographs for evidence of this. Long Exposure The capturing of motion depends in great part on effective use of shutter speed and aperture. Sharp Images It is not always necessary, however, to show the progress of movement in order to make it clear to the viewer that movement is occurring. As with so many other facets of photography, producing effective images of motion and movement is only ever the result of experimentation. You might also like... Title: (never shown) Notify:

Photographs digitally refocused at different depths, computed after a single exposure of our light field camera. Abstract This paper presents a camera that samples the 4D light field on its sensor in a single photographic exposure. To the photographer, the plenoptic camera operates exactly like an ordinary hand-held camera. Tech Report 150 dpi (1 MB) Video AVI (74.4 MB) Uses XVid codec.
