as you can see, i still have some slightly error when doing a 360*180° (4shots @ -45°, 8 shoots @ 0° and 4 more shots @ 45°); 360_Nadir shot with LRS56 URS100.jpg, however the Saw tooth method was OK (Sawtooth_Nadir shot with LRS56 URS100.jpg)
then i move the URS to 99 and to 96. I see some change but dunno which one is better.
i guess i need to complete a sphere to know.
What do you think?
I"m sorry to bother you, specially when i know i'll remove the Nadir afterward, but just want to be close to the perfection (as we all tend to;))
I suggest you accept 56 as the optimum LRS and adjust URS to eliminate the minor parallax at the horizontal level which is evident in the stitch of the 8 images in yout zip file. Then shoot some real panoramas.
hi john, here we are again, i was off during few months of photo, and now i started again,
i did a pano of my bathroom, and found out some slight shifts (specially on the roof): here
today, as a public holiday, i try to adjust again LRS and URS.
for LRS; what i did is took a picture of the NN ring of the tripod (004.jpg) and in photoshop, create 2 line in the center of the image, and the Ring should be at the intersection right ? so my LRS in this case is 62mm. then for the URS, i adjust it the same way as the NN manual (see pics 007, 008.jpg) when overlapping these 2 we can see the skewer doesn't move from the tripod...
SO at his point i thought the NNP was set ...
i did as before (4shots at -60°, 8shots at 0°, 4 shots at 60°) and again ... APP wasn't able to align the 16 pictures (i have a 7D, and shot with a Sigma 10-20mm @10mm)
This is really drive me crazy as i dont understand why this is not working as it supposed to !!!
Gepetto, despite the bad lower rail setting (it looks to be about 7.5mm off), I managed to get a good stitch. The blank walls means it's hard to find matching features between some images. I've uploaded the project file here: http://ge.tt/7vnfzXf/v/0
BTW, Although you used the camera in manual mode, you had auto white balance set. You should set an appropriate fixed white balance to make blending easier.
