    welcome radioactive28.

    update : nathanlogic & myself did a trial saturday morning. we both shot with canon dlsr + 50mm & zoom lens (covering 50mm too). As expected, with the crop factor of the dlsr, we ended up using 22 shots just to cover CK Tang. Hence, like I highlighted in the reply, dlsr is not suitable for this project (the more camera we use, the more photos to stitch).

    Nathanlogic will be stitching the photos and we shall see how it goes from there. Thanks Alvin.

    Looking @ this figure, we will need alot more photogs & camera eqpt. Pls sign up, and bring your friends in too.

    There are some problems encountered in this trial. I spoke to afew photogs (pro level), most can be solve, except 1.

    There will be tentage set along the walkway where the camera will be set in the Dec christmas celebrations, which will definatly block us.

    The way I look @ this, 2 solutions :

    1) delay actual exacution date to much later, when orchard dont have large scale event (I was hoping to shoot the deco ).

    2) get traffic police to close 1 lane (nearest to taka side ) for us to shot (very unlikely it will be approve ).

    Admin issue :
    A fellow CSer offer some software to help info management for free, I got dolpjki and nathanlogic to look into this possibility together with darren. Will post the nic of this super supportive CSer later.

    Sponsership issue :
    Will pen a formal proposal, cause after serious thinking, printing etc, will cause alot, though I dont wish for this, but seems like no choice.
    Mails had been sent out to people from various gov dept (STB, NAC etc) at personel level (ie informal), hope will have good news to share in the next update.

    Critical info issue :
    Pls remember to update the other threads which is meant to ease admin work. Note @ this point of time, I have not request for phone no.

    Project naming issue :
    For those who have not post their suggestion, pls do so in the other thread (closing this coming friday). Remember, polling for the title will start after that.

    Committee issue :
    For those who would like to volunteer to join the driving team (committee not formed yet), pls let me know (will require contact no. of cause).

    I have shot a few panos and like to suggest you consider some minor points.

    Shoot Portrait mode - this minimises the distortion from horizontal curvature of the lens and make the resolution higher also because after stitching, you need to trim off quite a bit on top and bottom to align well. That means you lose a lot of image area. But then when you shoot Portrait mode, you need more cameras / frames and the overlaps need to be at least 1/3 of a frame for the stitching to go really well.

    The other issue is, you can never time firing to be spot on. Just look at National Day when they fire the M-16 and you can hear the lag because some guys just cannot squeeze at the same time no matter how many times they practised. So expect to have a bus stretching two frames and looking longer than should be.

    Orchard Road is very densely populated with old leafy trees. It spoils the whole pano photographically and is also a pain to stitch.

    Have a good time boys.

    This might be obvious, but due to the scale and effort involved, every particpants should make it a point to test their equipment well beforehand. Especially if the film body has been sitting in the cabinet for a long time...

    It would be dreadful if after the whole event, one of the cameras turned out to be faulty (of course through no fault of the photographer) !!! Since its film, no chance for review until all is over...

    Guys, base on the preliminary trial, seems likely we need 100 - 150 cameras. Pls get your friends to join in.

    Ok... Almost forgot to mention: my lens has a bit of mould growing, though from my pictures, I don't see any obvious flaws. How?

    Er, how about shooting along the Singapore River?

    Walkway/Promenade developed in last few years is uninterrupted for 8+Km -from Kallang Basin, to Esplanade to Boat Quay to Clarke Quay and all the way beyond to Great World City. No blocking by obstacles, riverfront view, great light early a.m., fewer people, long panorama with scenic view across river, almost no trees, good mix of new and old architecture... You should be able to get good cooperation from authorities, MITA, because the area has been specially earmarked for renewal, artistic value, but still attracting little interest...
