How do you guys do pano shots what type of lens should i get i have a nikon d60 if that helps you
Well first off there are 2 ways of getting panorama shots:
1) using a wide angle lens
2) stictching together a series of shots from a smaller angle (normal) lens with a program like photoshop elments 6 to make on big photo.
Both will make good results - if you are thinking of doing a lot of panorama shots then the lens would be the best way to go - however before people can advise you on what lens to go after we would need an idea of the budget you have to spend on a lens.
as far as budget what would i be able to get at around 500
That second M.O. will work better if you use a short telephoto focal length (70 to 90mm), tilt the camera to portrait mode, and take many well overlapping photos to stitch together later.
Using a tripod, BTW, is a given.
For around that much money you could get the sigma 10-20mm, thats very wide.
I got an idea why not go to this wonderful site that I found that has a few nice tutorials plus a raucus forum.
Here's the link: http://www.thephotoforum.com/node/49
thanks for your help
sweet tutorial, i didnt even know this site had that. i'll look more into it.......
JIP, you beat me to it.
I wish that someone would correct the error about the "nodal point" being the correct point of rotation. It's the entrance pupil, not one of the two nodal points.
