Aerial Photographs Panoramas and Videos

Tromsoe, Norway



On this site I will be posting 360 movable panoramas and videos that I have taken using various multirotor Drones. Some are also taken at ground level using a normal camera tripod with a DSLR camera. They are numbered sequentially, starting from my earliest attempts (Panorama #1). As you go down the list you will see that the quality gets much better as my image capturing and processing techniques improve. This web site is at the moments very simple  since it is still under development and will hopefully improve as time moves on. All the images so far are taken from sites near the city of Tromsoe in North Norway.

Belvika Panorama (free hand 360 panorama)




















PANORAMA 7


Belvika Panorama (using Litchi automatic PANO (360 degree) capture function). In the PANO sub menu I choose 27 different camera angles with 3 bracketed (+2ev, 0ev and -2ev) images at each angle. Each of the 3 bracketed images for each angle were further processed using EasyHDR3 to create a single HDR image. All 27 HDR images were further processed in PTGUI to form a panorama image which was then converted into a spherical panorama using PANO2vr. Using HTML code this was then inserted into the web site.

PANORAMA 26
Bridge area leading to the small island of Haakoya near Tromsoe, North Norway

























October 22, 2016.  This was a first test with Litchi Auto Panorama function.
Total ca 210 images. First took 3 rows (started at +30 degrees and then used 20 degree gimbal angle difference for each row). 10 images on each row. Each image taken 3 times with bracketing function (+/- 2 ev). After the first 3 rows were taken I adjusted camera settings in flight and took 3 more rows and another 3 different camera tilt angles Finaly took a single row to ensure good overlap at -80 degree gimbal angle. Main problem today was  a) light conditions with low sun angle. b) no ND filter - removed lens protector. c) P3 had not always fully settled down (stabliized) between shots and causing small movement artifacts with the bracketing function. This problem has to be addressed. All in all a reasonable satisfactory test of the Litchi auto Panorama function but marred by small camera movements while taking images.
