    Creating a hand-held, 360-degree panorama can be a bit challenging (make sure of the overlap, especially, in dark areas and minimize movement of people and traffic) but the results are much different that a robot-generated GigaPan. Each has its benefits as they are much different but still very visually enjoyable.
