John Mitchell Posted March 13, 2021 Share Posted March 13, 2021 (edited) In hopes of stretching my horizons (so it speak), I'm experimenting with taking and making stitched panoramas. I've always liked panoramas, but up until now I've only done in-camera ones with the panorama setting in my Sony cameras (JPEG only), which can work surprisingly well but is limited. A couple of questions for you panorama experts. Is it best to shoot images for panoramas in horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) format? I find taking a series of landscape images easier but have read that using portrait format results in higher resolution. Can't say that I've noticed any difference (yet) myself, though. Also, is it worth buying a small panorama head, perhaps to fit on top of a ball and socket? There are lots of inexpensive ones available online. What features should I be looking for in a compact pan head? Currently, I'm using an an old Velbon tripod with a big pan pad head that I bought decades ago. It works OK but is a bit clumsy to use, especially with small mirrorless cameras Edited March 13, 2021 by John Mitchell Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
