    Nice perspective work.

    I do a lot of panorama work. I’ve had surprisingly good luck shooting panorama on my smart phone. I tried for years, lenses, knitting together separate frames, to no avail. Finally broke down and got a camera which did pano shots. Couldn’t be happier.Report

(The key is that the tripod mount aims the camera by computer control, so that the software to make the panorama has an easier task)Report
