    Default New pano, videos and photos from saturday

    Took a drive up the auto road on saturday, that was definately an experience!

    Here are some photos, a panoramic (qtvr) and some flash videos of the drive back down the road (plus a cool one of 2 trains heading up to the summit)

    Default Cool

    I've never seen anything like that panoramic view... I just looked straight up at the sky and did a 360. Very cool!!

    Ok - how did you do the 360 from the deck? I have seen these before but this is the best I have seen from the deck.

    I've been shooting quicktime VR panoramics for almost a year now. Trade secrets! LOL

    I set my tripod up in the corner of the deck, and then put on my panoramic mount head and camera (Canon Rebel XT). I have a remote trigger so I can get out of the way a bit before each shot.

    I shoot 1 picture every 60 degrees. Then one straight up and 1 straight down (although I didn't shoot a down shot for this one).

    If you look straight down you can see my tripod, and the "hole" where the pictures don't overlap.

    The clouds were blowing by pretty fast, so the sky has some weird blending between the clouds and no clouds. I should have shot more frames so I could blend the clouds better.

    My big concern was the wind. I was afraid it would knock my tripod over, so I wanted to shoot fast. Plus, it was a beautiful day and a lot of tourists up there (ok, myself included) so it's hard to get a clear deck shot (otherwise blending gives you half people

    I shot another "high altitude" back in March in NYC for WNBC. Blue skies, but very cold, and windy. That was fun though, I got to shoot a day shot and an evening shot, and security kept everyone back so I could get a clear deck. Next time I'll shoot right at the edge to get that awesome straight down effect.

    So it's a pano mount head, not a pano camera. I always wondered how it was done. Are you responsible for the other panos of the summit that are part of this website? Very cool stuff!

    I only shot 2 panos at the top on saturday, that was the first time I've been on the summit (that I remember...my parents took me up The Cog when I was 2 months old!)

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

    For those with short memories, Kirk put together some amazing panoramics of Mount Washington last spring.
