Here's a couple of HDR panoramas I shot over the weekend. They show the inside of St Mary's Chapel and to the left of the alter in the first panorama you can see the alter tomb of Catherine Parr, the 6th and last wife of King Henry VIII.


The panoramas were shot as a bracketed set (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2) with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 10.5mm f2.8 fisheye lens. All this was mounted on a Nodal Ninja 5 panoramic head atop a Manfrotto 190XProB tripod. Bracketed sets of photos were taken at 6 positions around (60 degrees apart) tilted down by 15 degrees and a zenith bracketed set of photos were taken too. Raw files were then processed through Adobe's Lightroom 3 Beta 2 before being processed in PTGui v8.3.10 Pro. Final processing into Adobe flash format was done with Pano2VR v2.3.3.

Great panoramas MrB! :biggrin:

I concur with Vincèn that the auto rotate speed should be slower.
I have made some in churches too, which are on my web site.
I use Pano2VR and have sometimes found it tricky to get a good rotation speed.

I look forward to visiting your web site and watching it grow.

All the best, Hugh.

Very nice. May I ask why you chose the NN5 for the D300? I thought most d300 users were content with the NN3.

At the time when I bought my D300 the NN5 Lite was just being released with the possibility of the upgrade to a full NN5. I went for this option and then upgraded when it was released. The other reason that the NN5 was the right choice is because I shoot with the vertical grip and additional battery. All this can then be mounted with the aid for a modified Manfrotto quick release plate (I have other Manfrotto tripod equipment and don't want to be swapping quick release plates over).
