This panorama has been stitched from two images taken with the Sony NEX5 camera. I used the so called “Sweep Panorama” shooting mode of the camera. You start to shoot while turning around. The camera takes images very fast and stitches them directly in the camera. The result is a single JPG image. In this case I had to take two panoramas, each with a resulting size of 12416×1856 pixels. Afterwards I used PTGui Pro to combine the two images, which had a horizontal FOV of about 207°. The final stitched panorama had a size of 21748×1776 pixels. One problem was moving people, like e.g. Bernhard. I was not able to correct this, because the error already occured inside the camera. Thus the source image for my panorama already had this error. 🙁
Note: This is the very first panorama I took with this new technique!

Due to the increasing distribution of cell phones most people don't need telephone booths any more. Being a common mean of communication just 30 years ago, nowadays the telephone booths are mostly waiting to be used..

This article presents a solution to the problem that the IR shutter mode of the Sony NEX 5 can't be combined with other shutter modes like bracketing. An arduino board with a servo is used to release the camera via the normal shutter button.
This panorama has been stitched from 6 handheld shots with the innovative Sony ILCE-QX1 'camera'.

In 2012 the German Unity Day has been celebrated in Munich. The celebrations include a showcase of the German federated states (Bundesländer) and also other institutions like the parties of the Bavarian parliament. In the courtyard of the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior was an exhibition showing the many task of the ministry. This image shows a reprojected version of a panorama I made in the courtyard.
