Old and Found Cylindrical QuickTime VR Panoramas

When I first started shooting panoramas, I had a 1-megapixel Fuji camera with little or no exposure adjustment. I mounted it on a discontinued Kaidan Kiwi-L panohead and stitched everything in The VR Worx, which is a good program, but I could never get a really good stitch, which I blame on the low quality lens. For QuickTime panoramas, The VR Worx outputs only cylindrical panoramas, so you can only see about 160° vertically, depending on your lens.

 

Here are most of my old panoramas. The majority were shot in Tokushima, Japan, and are grouped by theme. Because I mounted the camera vertically, the horizontal space was limited. As a result, I usually took 18 shots, one every 20°. Most of these are low-resolution, so they'll look bad full-screen, if your monitor is big. In that case, just shrink the window by grabbing the bottom right corner and moving it up and left.

 

Back when I shot these, I had no way of taking care of "ghosts," people and objects that move between component pictures and thus get blurred or cut in half. You'll see a few. You'll also probably notice vertical bars of light and dark, where clouds passed overhead while shooting or whatever. I had no good method of compensating for exposure differences.

 

"Found" panoramas are images that I've taken from the Internet and converted to QTVR. Where possible, I will give credit.

You can also see more of my panoramas at the WorldWide Panorama. The cylindrical panoramas, which I am unlikely to continue making, that I've contributed are listed below:

Energy: Mansfield Roller Mill / マンズフィルド町の水車小屋

Water: Tokushima City's Delta / 徳島市の扇状地

Marketplace: Charity Auction at Sogo / 徳島そうごのオークション

Sanctuary: View from "Castle Mountain" / 徳島市の城山からの景色
