If you are ever interested in trying panoramic shots here are some pointers to improve your odds of success:
- If possible, manually focus the camera and don't touch it again. Of course this won't work if you're taking things close to you.
- Set the aperture and the shutter speed manually and take all the shots at the same setting. If the light varies try to pick a average for the picture and set it there.
- Don't let the camera set the white balance (Auto). Use your judgement in selecting the appropriate setting.
- Obviously you cannot have anything moving where the pictures overlap. Otherwise the software can't find the overlapping area.
After all of that I leave you with this video.
