Is anyone doing panorama stitching with their Fuji X camera?

    Just curious if anyone has run into any issues doing this. I plan on shooting a bunch of panos this summer with my X-E1.

    Works pretty well on the X-100. Have to admit, I've not tried it on the X-Pro1. One pano from this past Fall.

    I am not sure why but built in Pano stitch mode on xp1 is better than the x100. But in enteral I tend to use the LR stitch program for anything serious. The x100 sometimes will stall on u w/ issues related to not panning fast enough. With the xp1 on wider than 24 equiv u can also crop to panno as well. I have down this w/ the 18 but the effect should look better on the 14.

    You are right about this, you can't slow down too much when shooting panos with the X-100. Forgot about cropping with a wider lens; I use the 15mm Voigtlander with my X-Pro so will try next time.

    Pano stitch, u need to also to be careful w/ type of scene. Scenes that have object moving between stitch points are not good such as a bird or or a lot of people moving around. This is where wide angle and crop work better

    Some example of xp1 w/ 18 cropped to Pano look. The last one was taken inside a wooden observation room, I noticed the symmetric window affect that would make it kind of look like a muti-frame Pano and crop to finish effect.

    No particular issues with panos, but I find the built-in feature on the XE1 a bit fiddly. Better to do it with software on the PC unless you need immediate results.

    6 shot stitch IIRC:

    Holocaust Memorial, Berlin, 2012. Fuji X100. A bit of mis-alignment in the auto-stitching towards the right quarter of the photo (jagged blocks of stone).
