Let's see some panoramas with the M10

Recommended Posts

As soon as I scheduled my two covid shots last February, I booked a celebratory trip in May to San Francisco. Here are two panoramas I took, one with my M10-R and one with my M10-M. The actual full sized files are 25,200 x 4,800 and 54,000 x 3,600 pixels. I've also included a full resolution sliver from the Monochrom pan to show the actual resolution. I have been doing stitched panoramas for over a decade and continue to love the process and what I can create. Some subjects just seem to beg to be wider, or taller.

Great topic! I also experimented with 50mm Summilux and it works surprisingly well, even without tripod.

Which software do you use?

I use Image Composite Editor (ICE). It was developed by Microsoft but they stopped supporting it a while ago so the SW is a bit hard to find. I'm pretty sure at some point I will have to switch to something else that is supported. I'm not looking forward to the day. I did try Hugin at one point. It is opensource. But I found it to be extremely difficult to work with.

BTW, the B&W pan is made up of 43 handheld images taken with my Elmar 135mm f4 lens. I don't recall the aperture but the shutter speed was 1/500. I bought the lens used years ago for a couple hundred dollars. It has cosmetic issues; the fake leather is pealing off in places. But, clearly, the optics are still great. Here is Ken Rockwell's excellent review of the lens: https://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/135mm-f4.htm

That monochrom pano is a monster! I don't think my little MacMini would survive a job like that. Would probably keel over and die halfway through. Have you ever tried to print it?

Here's one of my more successful ones, taken with (I'll whisper it) a Nikon D810. It's the Arakawa riverside in east Tokyo, about a 5-min bike ride away for me.

My laptop would make a serious gamer envious. No, I haven't had it printed. My printer (DuraPlaq) can only print up to eight feet.The monochrome pan is designed for fifteen feet. So I would probably have it printed in three five foot sections. It would make for an interesting tryptich.
