    "close quarters" i m refering to those with objects near to the camera, such as within your hall or shots with near by objects of say wtihin 3 meters...This is because of the difficulty in getting the front/back nodal point right. I can do this easily with my RRS setup, but not this... I actually got the eye-fi card so that I can transmit wirelessly and view the enlarged image on my laptop/ipad to help adjust the nodal pt position. What a pain with this mount!!

    I m not up to the level of taking technically demanding pictures. I am just a gadget freak who likes trying such thing...

    BTW, any tips to take gigapan pano with moving objects, such as crowds, etc.....i cannot put those those that i managed to googled into practice... Wonder how they did it.... (wanted to do it at the recent istana open house.... but...)
    hmmmm.... never try indoor and close objects before. mebbe i go and experiment taking my living room over the weekend...

    moving ah... the website recommend users use the Pause function and reshoot the row/column to catch people in movement. frankly, i dunno if that even works... which is why i was amazed at the guy who used it to shoot Obama's Inauguration address.

    gigapan mostly works when there's no moving subject and trying to get into the 50gigapixel or more club and you'll notice there's generally not much moving objects in those panos or moving objects are far thus wont really matter.

    Prague - http://bit.ly/7NnBF0 (18 gigapixel)
    Vienna - http://bit.ly/9ezMBJ (50 gigapixel)
    Strahov Library - http://www.360cities.net/gigapixel/strahov-library.html (40 gigapixel)

    explore multi-resolutions. Putting panos on websites are tricky. It takes too long to load, people loose interest. Multi-resolution allows you to load normal ones, then when users zoom, it load clearer pics in the background, like the Library one on top's link. You can see the titles of the books. Most of them were shot with some 70-200 lenses at 200mm (or even longer lenses outdoors) thus allowing really good zooms with titles still visible.
