First OM-D panorama

I got an invitation from Olympus Netherlands to try the OM-D, which will be introduced over here this weekend.
And of course I shot a 360º panorama with it

Here it is. Nothing special, but I am very impressed with this camera.
The picture quality is superb and the handling, especially with the grip is DSLR-like. I want one!



Click the picture to enter the interactive panorama.
Click the full screen button as soon as the panorama is fully loaded.

Enjoy.


Karel

Re: First OM-D panorama

That's impressive, how'd you do that? I'm much more impressed with the panorama than the camera (which is great, no doubt)....

Re: First OM-D panorama

Karel, I scrolled down looking at this shot and I felt weird ... discombobulated ... that feeling of being on a fairground ride ... now I realise it was the composition

BUT your panoramas are utterly the mutts nutts !

Re: First OM-D panorama

@Chevvyf1: Maybe it is because the panorama was shot from the top of my 20ft pole and you are a bit acrophobic….?

@Jim: Thanks

@ Derek: I took this one with the Samyang 7.5mm FE lens. Composed out of 6 images.
ISO 200, ƒ 8, 1/320 sec and all neutral settings.

Re: First OM-D panorama

Wow, that is not what I expected. Did you have the camera elevated, as the viewing height seems "high".

That really is an impressive camera.

Re: First OM-D panorama

@Iain, @zuiko-holic: Thanks

@kidslateinlife: this panorama was shot from the top of my 20ft pole

@John: Thanks. The panorama was stitched with PTGui Pro and published with Pano2VR.
Pano2VR has a Flash detect option, so it automagically switches to HTML5 when you browse the panorama link with an iPad or iPhone and the resolution is adjusted according to the screen size.
I am currently redesigning my site to make use of this option. It should be ready in a few weeks...
