I used to stitch my panorama’s using Canon’s PhotoStitcher, which came bundled with my camera, and being only so-so pleased. But the other night I discovered Hugin, an open source panorama stitcher that seems to do a much better job.
Here are some nice results from my last trip:
… or how to make a small space look huge.
I couldn’t resist, and bought another lens. This time a real wide-angle lens, the Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX. Yes, it’s a zoom lens, and on paper the range fitted nicely to my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. But the difference between 11 and 16mm turned out to be so tiny (and the image quality so good that cropping an 11mm image down to 16mm would be more than adequate), that I might as well have gotten a prime 11mm one. But still, a very nice lens this is!
