Re: Phase One P45 & PTGui
I have been doing some 180 degrees PTGui panorama from my P45 + 35 H2 lens
without any problems
OTOH I have used in C1 processed TIFFS only 5120 pixels of whole 7230 height
but I don't see why the whole width wouldn't work .
IMHO The file looks more crispy and smooth but the difference is not Huge against 5D files .
I would certainly give it a try if the image is to be printed really large .
- Hi Steve,
I used a Hasslelblad H2 with a P45 back to create a 600 megapixel
spherical panorama as a test. I had to output each of the three rows
individually and then used xblend to blend the final image. So I
think PTGui on a decent Mac/PC should easily be able to handle it.
