Tutorial 12

Having problems with you manual fisheye lens (like the Samyang / Rokinon / Bower 8mm or Peleng 8mm) getting started in your stitching software? Well, stitches require an initial “idea” of the focal length (and lens type) used — and they try to take that information from the EXIF data.

… But if you use a manual lens, this relevant information will be missing. In that case, it’s best to manually specify the appropriate values.

This tutorial shows you quickly how to manually set the appropriate parameters.

Oh, and here’s that overview picture again.

  1. dear Florian, first of all I would like to say how happy I am with your tutorials, not many photographers are willing to help others on their way with panoramas. Now I still have a problem with my Nikon aps (c) and the Samyang 8mm / f3.5. All pictures are made with the Nodal ninja head, are exactly aligned and level, all manually, photos loaded in PTGui, As indicated as a 9mm on 1.5 and as full frame. unfortunately I still get stitch errors and especially above in the panorama. What am I doing wrong?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Dear Ernst Paul, thanks for reaching out — I responded to you directly via email.

  2. I use “Samyang 12mm F2.8” with Sony a7iii (Full Frame) what Focal Length i should enter. Coz i am also suffering with the same issue.

    Thank You.

    • I have no experience with that lens, but I assume 12mm should be a good start?
