Most panoramas can simply be shot by hand however what occurs if you wish to shoot a multi-row pano? What if you wish to create a really “gigapixel” picture that would require over 100 pictures? You are going to want some {hardware} to assist

Syrps Genie Mini II is a modular rotating cylinder. By mounting your digicam to a single Genie Mini II you possibly can robotically pan a digicam back and forth shortly, for a panning shot in video, or slowly, to create a panning time-lapse. However in case you join two Genie Mini IIs along with a pan and tilt bracket you’ll be able to each pan and tilt your digicam.

1. Set your digicam to full handbook publicity and switch autofocus off

2. Plug the digicam into one of many Genie Mini IIs

3. Utilizing Syrp’s smartphone app you merely connect with each Genie Mini IIs through Bluetooth

4. Click on “Create Content material” after which “Panorama”

5. Select your digicam’s sensor dimension

6. Select your lenses focal size  

7. Set the beginning and endpoint by shifting the digicam to the higher left after which backside proper portion of your body

8. Set the “wait time” to permit the digicam sufficient time in-between every shot (extra time for longer exposures)

9. Press the document button

At this level the Genie II system will do the entire work taking the photographs and shifting the digicam in between pictures. To create a higher-resolution picture that requires extra pictures, all you must do is use an extended focal size by both zooming in or utilizing an extended lens. 

At present, the simplest method I’ve discovered to sew a panorama collectively is with Adobe Lightroom. Merely spotlight the entire pictures, right-click, and go to “Photomerge – Panorama.” If you happen to do that with uncooked information, Lightroom will create a completely editable DNG file with the entire latitude of your unique uncooked information. 

To take issues one step additional, you’ll be able to add a linear unit and a slider to this setup so as to add much more motion. You possibly can try my final video on that setup under.
