Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting super-wide-angle panoramas, part of Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera.
So I want to talk a little bit about taking this nice little compact lens that…we have in our camera and turn it into a super wide angle.…Now I'll tell you why I think this is important.…Have you ever had the experience where you're somewhere like this?…You are in this big beautiful expansive area. You are loving it.…You take a shot of it, you go home and you show your friends.…They look at the shot and go,…"Eh." Well, the problem was that you're showing them just a little slice of this…big beautiful scene.…
What if you can capture it all?…Well, we have our hard time, because our lens is usually aren't wide enough,…but there is this technique called panorama mode that allows you to do that very thing.…Basically, what you do is you take a number of shots and then stitch them…together on the computer and that makes one big picture and it looks fabulous.…Now there are a couple of ways to capture this scene.…There is one way holding it by hand.…And the way that I like to do that is I start out by taking the picture of my hand…
