    So a year after owning my first and only digicam, I decided to try and do a panorama. I just so happened to be in Hawaii at the time and was too lazy to leave to hotel to do it, and this was the result. Each consists of at least 3 seperate photos.


    Oahu - Hawaii, Aug/Sep '02.

    At night: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HPano2.jpg

    So I thought "This is better than panning the video camera to 'take it all in'"
    It is. But it is a bitch to get even brightness/contrast between shots, especially in the sky. Most of these aren't cleaned up completely...

    At the beach, near North Shore *possibly NWS ;)*: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HPano6.jpg

    A road stop: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HPano7.jpg

    A temple: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HPano8.jpg

    Waikiki beach, "The wall", the morning of my 20th brithday, 500+ degrees around - this is pretty interesting to scroll around: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HPano9.jpg




    Laguna Beach - CA, Mar '03.
    View from the spot where one of my cousins got married. Halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/LBPano1.jpg




    Yosemite, May '03.
    This is cathedral rock, I believe, behind a meadow. It is my first try at taking frames vertically instead of the normal sideways like all the others. (People & campers have been edited out): http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/SPano1.jpg

    And of the valley: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/SPano2.jpg





    Hong Kong, Aug '03.
    From atop our hotel: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/HotelRoof.jpg
    And at night: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/NightHotelRoof.jpg

    View out from the Tai O Buddah: http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/TaiOBuddah.jpg





    Reno - NV, Oct'03.
    Nevada is barren (if you follow the road to the far right on the hill, straight out, those are the casinos): http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/RPano1.jpg





    Año Nuevo state park beach - CA, Mar '04:
    This is along highway 1, about 30mi north of Santa Cruiz. It is a sealion preserve (you may spot a few, my camera sucks): http://home.comcast.net/~ekriirke/Pano/ANPano1.jpg



    So I think that'll do it for now. Digital cameras rock for panorama. I always take at least one on any trip.

    And I want a new camera, these are all 50% reductions (except the 500 deg. one - 25%), my camera interpolates so it isn't a true 2.1MP sens..

    Awesome pics! What kind of camera do you use?

    I loved taking panoramics with my Canon A70. Now I use a G5...much better in the respect of more controls. :)

    Fujifilm Finepix 2400Z 3x op. zoom "2.1"MP :wtc: bought in '01
    I want a new 4+ MP camera :hs:


    Am I wrong calculating megapixels by using (max) output picture dimensions?
    The specs have 1600x1200, which is true, but that only amounts to 1.9MP
    And they are not sharp at all, I can almost do a 50% reduce then 200% blowup and come back with the original.
