I thought I'd be able to shoot a rectilinearly correct pano by taking a series of shots from L - R, following a straight line and moving the tripod between each shot.
I'd like to create a Hi Res photographic version of of these elevation style paintings - http://www.locos-in-profile.co.uk/Pr...4/Mallard.html, shooting something like 6 or more portraits shots for maximum coverage.
I've tried two experiments thus far and both have been abject failures. One was with the Tok 10-17 fish and other with my Canon 17-40 @ 17mm.
I thought if you were parallel to the subject PTGUI would cope with the lens distortion and happily overlap the scenes?
I suspect I'm doing something fundamentally wrong so has anyone tried such a project and can point me in the right direction?
