Description

The exposure is off a bit and there are some stitching errors, which I usually do not see.

The exposure problem is due to the excitement of having a new camera and not being in a dark area to check the correct exposure setting.

I suspect that the stitching problem is due to the enormous photo file, which requires an exact alignment or axis situation. When taking hand-held panoramas and having a small file size, one could get by with poor technique, but no longer will this be the case as the D7000 is not as forgiving as the D70. I will have to give up hand-helds and now use a tripod when using the D7000 when making 360-degree panoramas.

Note: This panorama can be seen in Google Earth as a beautiful curved panorama on a curved surface by clicking the link, View in Google Earth.

This hand-held panorama was taken with a Nikon D7000 using a Nikkor 18-105 f/3.3-5.6 G ED lens and was stitched using the GigaPan Stitcher software. Additional information can be seen in Stitcher Notes.
