The Abbey steps

By YorkshireSam
I do lots of multi frame stitched panoramas and almost always use a dslr on manual settings and a tripod but this one was an experiment using a tiny canon ixus compact camera and it was hand held. To cover the entire scene I had to shoot it in portrait mode and even then in 2 rows because I was already as far back as I could be pressed hard up against a cottage wall. The constantly moving people was the trickiest part and as you see I do have some Doppelgangers but apart from that I am amazed at just how well the little ixus and photoshop software has coped. I did have to do a fair amount of lens distortion correction to each frame before stitching though.

Well put together.
For the few panoramas I've done in the past I haven't used a tripod and some were an afterthought but I still got great results so you shouldn't have had any qualms using your compact here. The result speaks for itself Smile
