Panorama Fords Pond on the morning of 28 April 2012.

Took a moment during last Saturday morning’s outing to shoot several series of images for panoramas up at Fords Pond.  This was my first opportunity shooting a pano series with the E-M5, and to be honest, it was brought on as much by the dearth of wildlife at the park as by the desire to capture the sweeping spring vista.

I was a little curious how well the photomerged process would work with the E-m5’s files.  Turns out there’s very little difference compared to assembling a pano shot with the 7D, except that the E-M5’s was finished quicker due to the smaller file sizes.  I was very happy with the results, however, and found the color rendition very pleasant and the sharpness quite good, considering I was using the kit lens.

Again, please keep in mind that these are fully processed panoramas; I’ve tweaked the colors, contrast, and sharpness in post just as I would any other regular shots.
