New Zealand Panorama-rama : Giving the Fuji X-Pro1 a Landscape Workout | Nate

New Zealand Panorama-rama : Giving the Fuji X-Pro1 a Landscape Workout | Nate | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

New Zealand Panorama-rama! One feature of many current-model travel camera’s is the ability to easily capture panoramic images. In a country like New Zealand, I finally realised the benefit of such an easy to use feature. There’s an obvious reason so many films are shot in New Zealand – three-hundred-and-sixty degrees of mind blowing scenery, almost anywhere you stand. A landscape built for panoramic photos. At first, I considered writing an article titled “the entire country of New Zealand in 500 words or less”. But then I thought, why not collect some of the panoramic photos I have taken in Aotearoa, and present them in one article? If this New Zealand panorama-rama doesn’t make you want to travel to the land of the long white cloud, nothing will. I’m pretty certain it will. In New Zealand, I lived inside a twenty-year old RV (motor home) for about three weeks straight, and travelled all over the South Island. I should mention, I’ve got a bit of a thing for budget accommodation. Sure, when I last visited UK, I stayed in a 4 star luxury hotel in London. But this certainly wasn’t London. It’s New Zealand, and for almost a month I traded posh hotels for cosy RV’s, and grimey streets for stunning landscapes. I gave up the urban jungle, and got back to nature. Much like my lack of London knowledge (as tactfully pointed out in the comments here), I’m a bit of a novice at landscape photography. But really, how can you go wrong in New Zealand? As with many newer travel cameras, the Fuji X-Pro1 has a really simple-to-use panoramic function. Just stand in one place, hold the shutter down, slowly sweep from left to right, and if you’re in New Zealand, you’ve got yourself one heck of a panoramic photo. Choice, bro. There is just a little bit of camera manual-ness required to get your own pics like these – you don’t want a shutter speed too slow, or it will be blurry. You don’t want an aperture too large, shallow depth of field makes it more difficult to get a cleanly stitched panorama. Have I lost you? Read the PS below, and all shall become clear. What more can I say about New Zealand? Nothing. These pictures tell you all you need to know. New Zealand is simply incredible, and I really think travelling the South Island was a “journey of a lifetime”. But, this week, I’m in London, my favourite city. Only joking! I’m in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I’ve been using my time in Kuala Lumpur to eat ridiculous meals, and to set up for a journey I am incredibly exited about…

I love Panorama photo, still learning how to shoot it with camera not through post production.

X-Pro1 - Cologne Cathedral at night | Michael on Digital Photography Review | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


My first outing with the Fuji (after selling all my Nikon D700 gear) for a test shooting in Cologne: 8 x 3 Shots (+1 / 0 / -1 BKT) with 60mm in Velvia Film Simulation and DR200.

 

I stitched each set of exposures first then loaded the single-exposure-panoramas as layers and played around a bit with masks (all Photoshop)

 

I find the resolution from the in cam panos is to low. The benefit of high res is that you can use iso 6400 for example and still get impressive print sizes... At least that was the case with my d700 and the xpro is compareable if not better due to more megapickles...

The reason for the 60 mm was the distance to the object of at least 300 or more meters...
