auto-pan tripod head?

anyone know of a tripod head that will rotate automatically for pan shots? some sorta spring or battery drive? I'd like to set one up at the CampOut this September.

well.

Nice stuff.

Jeebus, lots of these don't fit even on my (office) 22" Cinema Display! Funny, the 180's seem to create a better experience if I make the window small and pan across them--it's like turning my head and looking around.

So, I'm gonna ask...I've got an Oly D520z (I think) and all over the box and specs they brag about its "panorama function", the use of which is completely undocumented in the manual. Unless I missed it. It could happen. Anybody know anything about this? It does say that it only works with genuine Olympus memory cards. Okay, I got one of those...now what?

Meanwhile, here's a pseudo-pano from near Round Mountain, Texas:



And another from just west of Lenorah. That's almost New Mexico, but not quite:

re Morenci Mine

Stuntclown--


The panorama of the Arizona mine is a stitch of just three frames from a Nikon 995 3.2 Megapixel camera. Not fancy by todays cameras at all.
I shot 3 frames free hand and stitched them together in PhotoShop Elements. I like the colors - the landscape around there is truly gargantuan in scale.

Someone asked about tripods heads for panoramas - I think if you look under Panorama heads - QTVR - that you can find something - try this link
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...dren&Q=&ci=105
and then click on Panorama heads
These are not cheap heads - they are Pro level equipment but well made.
But most of my panos are just done free hand - I try to keep the horizon level and overlap about 30% and go with that.
I will try to upload another picture a little later.

Here is little stitch of just two frames from a local trip

Freeware for panorama stitching

Found this bit of freeware for stitching together panoramas. Not perfect, but it is free.

http://www.panoramafactory.com/cgi-b...l?version=free

There is a newer shareware version. The freeware version worked well for me, and took just a minute to stitch 5 frames together automatically.

Here are a couple from today....

Both were taken in the same location. Just different
Directions.

The first is Eugene Doran Memorial bridge. Named for a
police officer killed in the line of duty. It carries the traffic
for Interstate 280. The photo was taken from the dam
at Crystal Springs.



This image was made from the same location. This body of
water is Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir.



The reservoir is water storage for San Mateo County. Some of
the water comes from the high Sierra and Hetch Hetchy Reservoir
located near Yosemite National Park. A side note. Hetch Hetchy
was once called a smaller version of Yosemite Valley. Even with
the dam and reservoir, Hetch Hetchy is an impressive place.

Here's another looking towards the city of Fremont.

This one is one of my first attempts. Used my wife's S230 Elph handheld and Photostitch. Would be much better with a tripod, but you gotta use what ya got!

This image is 8 images stitched togther and is really too large to see any detail here. Ya gotta start somewhere.
