Derek_nb Posted April 6, 2015 Share Posted April 6, 2015 For almost 15 years I have been taking panoramic images, initially stitching individual images together with various software. Then when Sony introduced Sweep Panorama in 2010, I started using Sweep Panorama (in camera stitching) and although relatively low resolution (1080 pixels height), presumably using video technology in the camera, it worked well and completely speeded up the taking and post processing of images. However, I recognise that the Sony cameras that initially offered Sweep Panorama do not appear on the recommended list of cameras for QC, and I have not submitted any. More recently, Sony Cameras that are on the recommended list, offer higher resolution Sweep Panorama mode, and produce panoramic images with 1856 pixels height. I always crop these images to 3:1, 4:1, 5:1 or 6:1 aspect ratio, and I have recently submitted some, and they have passed QC. However, I have been very careful about the quality of individual images, and I have found, when looking at closely, that Sweep Panorama images, can have quality problems, and I do not submit them if I have any doubt about the quality. Does anyone else have experience of using Sony Sweep Panorama and submitting to Alamy? Would I better, especially for images with 3:1 or 4:1 aspect ratio, simply using a wide angle lens and crop the pictures, where appropriate, to 3:1 or 4:1?
