Today, april 7th, i am going to make some panorama photo's. I will use my Canon Eos 450 with the 17-40 4.0 L in manual mode and fixed aperture. Exposure time will be on automatic. I will use a Manfrotto 455B tripod with a 056 Tripod head.
The idea is to center the frontlens exactly above the column of the tripod in order to get every picture shot from the same position when repositioning the camera from left to right or from right to left. This way, merging all pictures will be easy. The camera will be re-positioned on 2/3 of the previous picture. The 1/3 overlap will make sure you have enough image-space to move the pictures in position in order to stitch to 1 complete panorama. [ [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] ] (Something like this where [ ] is the single image and x the overlap part when shooting).
When i have the the panorama's done i will link them here.
