Fageralm & Erentrudisalm

Sponsor: 7reasons

In the municipality of Elsbethen the Fageralm and the Erentrudisalm are perfect attractions waiting for you… There you’ve an perfect view on Salzburg. I took the chance and tested my new Samyang 85mm lens. The panos you see are done without tripod, so bracketed images were no option. The Fageralm pano is made of 8 and the Erentrudisalm pano is made of 14 images in portrait mode..

It was hot for beginning June, 29 degree and a hazy weather … so finally not the best condition to make a pano to zoom several kilometers…

This Pano was shot with 6 images + 1 nadir image using a Canon EOS 400D and a Samyang 8mm Fisheye lens. On each position I shot three brackets +2,0,-2 using the camera built in function. The images got enfused with Photomatix, the pano stitched with Autopano Giga and the tour created with Panotour Pro. It was very windy and tripod was placed in water so in result the brackets did (once more) not allign perfectly because of shakeing and in final pano its rather bad image quality. On other side the underwater video (hotspot in pano) was not so bad for this first test. I did cut the video, reduced the 50fps to 12fps and reduced the full hd format to 1024 x 576 pixel to get an mp4 filesize of 100mb. youtube finally did further steps to reduce videosize finally…
