More Fun with Panoramas

Last weekend I went to Boston, and took a few snapshots of Boston harbor.  While these are another great example of how good the iPhone 4 camera is, that’s not the focus of this post.

There is something amiss with these panoramas.  I didn’t spot the problems right away, but as I worked with them, it became obvious.  And the reason for the problem is also obvious: the stitching isn’t perfect if all the elements in the picture don’t line up exactly right.  This is especially true for subjects in the foreground, which move about more as you change positions for each photo.

Anyway, see if you can spot the imperfections in these pictures!

iPhone 4 Camera

How good is the iPhone 4 camera?  I haven’t had a chance to really give it a good run, so on my way home from work today, I stopped and took some photos.  Once home, I used Windows Live Photo Gallery to stitch them into a panorama. Using Microsoft software to manipulate photos taken on an Apple device? Unthinkable!

Anyway, in all seriousness, here are the results.  For the most part, I’m impressed — especially considering these are coming from a camera phone.  But, they’re not nearly as detailed as the panoramic photos I took with my real camera while in Spain earlier this year.  Also, the afternoon sun didn’t play nice with some of the shots.

Here are the undoctored (except for being stitched together) photos. Click on them to see the full size pictures (they’re BIG, about 2-3MB each!).
