8mm Pelang, 6 images (1 shot per 60 degrees)
10-20mm Sigma, 7 images (1 shot per 45 degrees)
Gotten the 8mm Pelang again to try out as the previous attempt was not possible due to a sprained back I had from work. Not as good as I wanted it to be and seems to have more work than I expected. I’ve read on many sites about this popular lens for 360 panos (along with the 10.5mm Nikkor) but I give up after a few hours of tries. Sticking to my 10-20mm Sigma that has serve me very well without the fisheye effect to worry about. Yes, we can defish it with software but the workflow will take up more time. Above, you’ll see the comparison, comparing 10-20mm and the 8mm Pelang taking a 180 Pano of my room. Sorry, it’s not a 360 x 360 Pano.
So what’s good about using a 8mm Pelang to take a pano? Well, “people” actually. Those of you who has seen a few of my panos will know that at times, there the “ghosting” effect of people walking from left to right in a pano and as there’s no way to tell them to stop walking since it’s a public place, it’ll be good if a 8mm is used as you need fewer shots eliminating the need rush to take the pano shots as the passer by won’t be able to walk into your frame yet after taking a shot. Some has taken successfully panos with the 8mm with as little as 4 shots (4 images, 90 degrees per shot) thus, it effectively froze the scene with the right shutter and aperture/ ISO settings! That’s really cool, not to mention a lot lesser work in Photoshop and PTGui later.
I’ve termed some Pano 180 when it is actually a 360 x 0 degrees shot where a full 360 pano is actually 360 degrees x 360 degrees allowing you to spin in any direction to see “what’s there”. With a 360 x 0 degrees pano, you can only go left and right and thus, it simpler to just name them 180 Panos, as in 360 divde by 2. Yes, it ain’t right strictly speaking and I do know of that. Anyways, enjoy all the panos here!

Maitreya Hall (Left)
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva Hall
I was lucky as a small ceremony was going on when I reached this hall.
Back of the Temple.
There has been so much discussion and criticism of the actual authenticity of the tooth relic and the housing it sits in, a full 420kg of gold casing. No one is certain what they are actually praying to, how true or not the tooth relic is, the temple very beautiful place to visit with it’s great architectural designs. I was there to admire and take in all the sights and sound more than to pray with a friend who’s a very devoted Buddhist whom is also there to take photos and nothing else. No matter if it’s true or not, if it’s not doing bad or harm to anyone, let’s just enjoy.http://www.btrts.org.sg/

Good and bad thing. I recently crashed my file server at home but all’s well as it’s running RAID 5 and been a long time since I burn them to DVD so good time to upgrade. Replaced it with 2 x file servers (both RAID 5 of course!) and formatted the rig i used to generate all the pano you see as I found out it’s not the software(s) causing problems, it was the OS itself.
Here, some remake of the panos in better resolutions. Enjoy!
