Images for panoramic stitching: a databank

 

Welcome to my various lens image database.

Reviews of some lenses that are used by the panoramic photographers were issued at various occasions on my website:

1. Fisheye lenses:

2. Standard lenses:

Collecting and presenting image samples:

You shall find a collection of sets of test sample images that can all be downloaded from the folowing table. The images in each set can be stitched to get a complete 360x180° panorama...

Notes:

(*) Shooting and presenting this collection of image were heavy tasks and required an unusual level of concentration from my part. Furthermore, because of very limited available bandwith and very slow ADSL connection, I have had a hard time to upload some big files. Errors may have creeped through and in addition some data that are linked on the table may be corrupted. Please report to michel.thoby(at)fnac.net for eventual correction or possible improvement.

(**) A big scar scraped the surface of the front of this Samyang lens during a hard landing of the lens on a concrete floo: hence an obvious and strongly fogged spot is unfortunately locally visible on some images:-(

(***) A panorama that had been sttitched by using these individual images (with bracketting and enfusion after conversion from raw to tif) can be in the mean time viewed here.

(****) 6 years ago: the Sigma 8 mm lens was used then to shoot this panorama (on an APS-C EOS 20D)
