10 Shot HDR Panorama Made On My iPhone in Tempe Arizona

Shot this on the balcony at Rustler’s Rooste in Tempe, AZ at a team dinner. I took a five shot panorama with the sky exposed correctly, then another with the ground exposed correctly.

Then I merged the light and dark images in the TrueHDR app, and stitched the result together in the Autostitch app (two of my very favorite photo apps).

I’m pretty pleased with the result, though I haven’t seen it on a bigger screen yet (posting this on my iPhone via Posterous, too),

Can’t wait to do stuff like this on the iPad’s bigger screen! :-)

  1. Stitched on my iPhone, and yeah, not all the frames are perfect. Iwish there was an app to give me manual exposure controls on my iPhone- as it is, I had to rely on my finger and my memory to try to geteach of the 10 photos exposed correctly as I shot them. :-)

  2. Pretty impressive for an iphone Josh. I can see some of the stitching affects, but still, its impressive for a PnS. If you had it on a tripod and dialed it in at 10deg increments, it would probably come out perfect! You probably don't know this, but I am a semi-pro photographer, with thousands of $ in camera equipment and software. Its not easy to get good HDR shots to come out. I love my bracketing feature on my Nikon!

  3. Ok so is there a iphone tripod? Since there is no standard camera threaded whole on the iphone, it would seem some case/holder that had one would be a cool item

  4. Reading Dave's info, I thought 10 degrees AND every second, because the light was changing, time increments were important also. Then I thought hey, it would be cool to use the video to capture the frames and then just wave your camera over the scene and have the stitcher stitch the video frames.

  5. You could try this:http://joby.com/gorillamobile/3g/I have a GorillaPod, and the iPhone attachment kit (basically asuction cup tripod plate), and it does what it says on the tin. I wouldn't trust my iPhone to it in a precarious mounting situation(over the side of a cliff, etc.) but it does great stabilization. Also see the GorillaPod iPhone photo app, which gives you a grid, bubble level, digital zoom, shoot-when-stable, and other nice features. And it's free.

  6. just bought one, so when it is here I will post a big pic with it and the s/w. I have the app already also. So once again, you have made reveneue happen for 2 companies, ( and apple indirectly). If only you got 0.1% of the revenue.

  7. No kidding. i wish there was an affiliate program for iPhone apps (though if I had thought about it, I could have given you an Amazon affiliate link for the Joby stuff. Oh well! :-)
