Description

Which kind of camera makes a better panorama: a full-frame DSLR or a point-and-shoot? This is a test that pits my Canon G10 (with a 1.54X tele attachment) against my Nikon D3 with 80-210mm Nikkor zoom. Here you see the Nikon D3 with a homemade mount to keep the angles the same.

    To my eye, the G10 version is sharper. Compare to www.gigapan.org/gigapans/46768/
