Well, I finally broke down and bought a Pano Head. Bought a Manfroto303. I've been shooting panoramics for about 3 years now and been manually rotating with semi-descent results, but I just wasn't happy with the finals. Here's 2 shots of my backyard shot with my 5D, Sigma 12-24 at 12mm. 12 shots at 30 degree increments. I'm not happy with the sky (blown out) but it's pretty difficult to expose for the garden and the sky both. Looking for a real nice "puffy cloud" day. I'd love to hear some comments. Thanks!
