In  Show #3 we discussed Andrew Morris's method of taking panorama photos.  He puts the camera in rapid fire mode and just fires away while panning the camera.  You then bring in the images to Photoshop and let it sort out all the blending.  I have never tried this before.  Any time I did pano's, I used a tripod and carefully made sure i got overlapped images and tried to keep the camera level as it panned.

So I went out today and gave it a try.  I turned the camera to the vertical position so I would get more vertical data started firing away.  Then I brought the images home and loaded them into Photoshop.  There were 30 images in the pano!!!  Took the computer a bit to process and I was glad I accidentally picked up the D2h (4mp) rather than my D2x (12mp+) when I headed out the door.  If I had know it was going to be 30 images, I would have switched in JPEG mode also.

Anyway, while not a particularly interesting pano, the method did work.  Shooting vertical was a good idea because I did have to crop more than usual due to the hand-holding.

Here is the shot.

I tried doing this once, but after 3 or 4 shots my camera stopped firing because the card write buffer was full (RAW files, it does longer bursts in JPEG mode).  Did you run into this at all when trying this out?  I suspect I just need a faster card, but at 15MB each for RAW, I'd need a really fast card in order for it to keep up with my camera.  IIRC, it cycles at around 3 shots/sec in continuous mode.

This was one of those times I actually shot jpeg.  I also used my Nikon D2h which has a smaller file size than my Nikon D2x and has a larger buffer.  I think on my D2x I would have to shot at a lower FPS than full speed or else I would run into the same problem you mentioned.

Did you notice a difference between taking 30 shots and maybe taking a dozen while using a tripod?  Also, how did you treat the exposure or did you let Photoshop blend the exposure  together.  I usually have a problem with the exposure from one side of the photo to the other.

I should have done a test at the same time doing the normal method (ie, use a tripod) so I could compare.  What I did find is since the camera was not on a tripod, I had more than usual that needed to be cropped from the combined image.  I knew that would be the case, which is why I shot this in portrait orientation.

As for expose, it was pretty much the same in all the images since they are all only a few seconds apart.
