So… I spent New Years Eve in Chicago this year and got a quick glimpse of the city skyline before going home and having an exciting night of going to bed before mid-night. I know it’s boring, but being a new dad I’ll take sleep when I can get it. I did wine it up the week before in Point Reyes with a buddy of mine. That said, I’m impressed with the quality of this little D7000 prosumer camera so far. I haven’t used it as much as I’d like, but it seems really great in low light. This coupled with new stuff in Photoshop CS5 I was able to pull off this impressive pano-stitch. Here’s why I say impressive…..
- It was a stormy night, there was no moon to be had, and it was taken well after sundown, so it was very dark out. considering the ambient light and that I had no tripod, I had to shoot at ISO 6400, but the noise (grain) was acceptable–impressive.
- I hand held this 6 frame pano and stitched it flawlessly. No special pano-head or nodal point consideration required, and I thank Photoshop and Adobe’s new technology for this–also impressive.
- Handheld photography after a Blue Moon beer and a shot of Patron and Absolute–impressive.
