Having read the article, it means not moving the camera, but shifting horizontally fully one way, then the opposite and combining the images. These will not be affected by parallax because the camera doesn't move.
Or just use a wider lens and just crop the image. Or use a longer lens and overlap a lot, then combine as you would anyway with more frames.
A T/S lens is fixed length (I think the widest is 24mm) so I expect the OP might already have a wider lens he can use anyway.

Some excellent answers, thank you
I'll stick with my 5dmk2 and try get more used to digital stitching, maybe even invest in a pano head one day, or if I ever get spare funds then I can buy a pano film camera alongside my digital gear.
I suppose cropping a high res file is adequate enough for alot of situations, and you can always rely upon interpolation if you need to print even larger.

Sounds good to me
But you could still have a little fun, if you still hankering for real film without selling your gear or braking the bank.
I shoot some pano with a Horizon 202 pano camera. You can pick them up on ebay. I scan the negative on a scanner and switch together in Photoshop. It is quite involving and stitching on a pano head is the way forward I think.

...and remember that, to produce a panorama that way, you are not cropping it in from the sides - only from the top and bottom - which corresponds to the format you will want your print to be anyway. A panoramic image cropped from a D800 Raw file will certainly print to provide a panorama 6 feet wide without any trouble.
Im not sure if anyone will still pick up this post, but if they do, perhaps you can help me? I too am in Simon's boat ie I absolutely love pano...I mean, love I guess it is because it is how we see with our eyes...anyhow, someone made a point about the Nikon d800, and then cropping from the massive resolution...this is something just the other day I was thinking might be an option to still allow for movement of clouds, water etc and for changing light conditions, and not having to stitch. However, would this not affect the perspective? ie say you used a 24mm lens, the field of view left to right may be the same as the panoramic format, but the perspective would be different, as in less compressed...Am I right in thinking this, or am I missing something?
