Thread: Panoramic View

    Default Panoramic View

    Hi everyone, I wonder what lens photographers use to take panoramic photos? (those landscape kind of photos). I'm currently using a 450D.. Does Sigma 10-20mm or Canon Efs 10-22mm does the job? Or any other recommended lens for a good wide angle shot?

    Thanks..

    There are dedicated panoramic cameras that capture pics in pano format, for example Hasselblad's X-Pan and Fuji's GX617, but these lie out of most ppl's budget at the $4k region.. otherwise, the 10-22 does the job quite well or you could consider Tamron's 11-16 as well but you lose out 1mm of wideness which does count in ultra-wide range.. also its not all about the lens or body, you'll need to have the proper techniques if you wanna stitch your photos into a pano..

    The SONY DSC-HX1 have a Sweep Panorama Mode for taking such pictures.

    hmm ok, can I say that.. if I were to get either the 10-22 or Tamron 11-16, I will have to self edit the photos to panoramic size?

    Thanks

    You can either stitch multiple photos or just take with the widest angle that your lens allow and crop off the top and bottom.

    I would recommend the former as it can be easily done with tripod, manual focus and photoshop (including elements).
