Canon G10 with Raynox DCR-1540...


Panorama taken from the observation deck of the Foshay Tower. I had to clamp the GigaPan to a railing above my head, forcing me to level the panorama by eye. I didn't do too badly, considering. At the same spot in every column, the GigaPan would snap and give a lurch, causing me to flinch. I had visions of the whole thing tumbling 30 stories and killing someone. Canon G10 with Raynox DCR-1540 tele adapter, giving an effective 35mm focal length of 219mm.

    We haven't had many clear days this summer but I was able to take advantage of this one. I expect I'll envy your Houston weather this winter. The G10/Raynox combination is excellent for the GigaPan, especially if you shoot in RAW. Tom

    Great looking GigaPan... I envy you that you are able to take panoramas in August with minimal cloud coverage. Here in Houston, if I see cloudless sky, all I have to do is wait 5 minutes before the clouds instantly appear. Also, after looking at your panoramas, I may consider buying a G11 and the Raynox adapter.
