    Well I loved it until the new Nikkor 18-200 VR. Now I have Pe.....er lens envy lol. All kidding aside, it is a great lens. Pictures come out sharp and crisp. It does do a little searching for focus at times and is a little noisy, but for the price its well worth it. I am a very happy Sigma customer!

    The image is probably too long to display in my post, so I'll just post the link.

    My first panoramic photo with my A510.

    brianlp, it's a good pano shot!
    If you wish to make them fit here - may I suggest a max width of
    999 = like this one below...
    This one was an early one I did - manually! ~ it took a while as it was hard to fit together in places.
    It's a view from a rooftop of Croydon and East Croydon
    station, made from 6 3mp pics, then this one is resized.

    Here is a shot I took with my trusty little Canon A85. This shot was made by stitching 4 4mp shots together.

    panoramas

    Here are some of the panoramas I made last summer.


    On this one you see Vernazza, a small village in Liguria (Italy). Six pictures (portrait) have been used and the panorama has been stitched with Arcsoft Panorama Maker 3.


    A panorama of Lago di Orta (Italy).


    Here is one of my vertical panoramas. You see the Duomo of Firenze (again in Italy). It has been shot from the nearby church tower.

    Prospero,
    Great Pano shots - I like the vertical one - I must try a few of those this
    year!
    Cheers

    Landscape vs. Portrait vs. Multi-row

    Using portrait images rather than landscape images alows you to create a wider vertical view. It is therefore a good alternative to a multi-row panorama, as it is a lot easier to make. Multi-row panorama's do tend to cover a larger area though.

    To illustrate my points I'll show you three examples.

    This panorama showing St. Peters Square has been made of many landscape pictures (I don't recall how many, the source files have been thrown away to save hard-disk space).



    This panorama showing St. Peters Square has been made of three portrait pictures. I have used PTGui to stitch this one, because this stitching tool allows parallel projection. This means that the result will have a straight rather than curved horizon. Unfortunatly, PTGui is more difficult to use than Panorama Maker. You can see that this panorama shows a lot more of the church, thanks to the wider vertical view.



    Finaly, this panorama showing San Gigiamo (a small village in Italy), is a multi-row panorma. It has been made of 8 pictures. There are 5 in the upper row and 3 on the lower row (this has been caused by perspective). To make this one I have also used PTGui, Panorama maker wouldn't do the trick no matter what I tried. The image may seem heavily distorted. However, when you take into account that it has been shot from above, the distortion can largely (though not entirely) be explained by natural perspective. Even though it's difficult to compare, as the panorama shows a different scene, this one has an even wider vertical view than the previous one. Creating one like this will take quit some time, unfortunatly.

    Prospero, great examples - and nice photos too.
    I like the portraits method for simple panoramas too.
    I plan to take some of those multi-layer Panoramas this year
    myself ~
    I nickname them Mega-ramas
    As for when the programs don't comply - I have often resorted to
    manual stitching!! - This, of course, takes quite a while and lots
    of patience...

    cheers
    Geoff
