Guillaume Filion's Panomaras

During the end of the 90's, QuickTime VR Authoring Studio introduced me to panorams making. It wasn't a simple task, however. I didn't have a digital camera, so I had to take pictures with a standard 35 mm, and had the film developped on a CD for 25$ per 24 shots film. Also, the closest equipment capable of doing this (drum scan) was in Toronto more than 800 Km from where I live -- that meant waiting for more than one week go get the CD. That's why I abandonned this hobby after only 2 or 3 panos, despite the pleasure I had making them.

In 2002, I bought my first digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix. This camera allowed me to redicover the pleasures of panorama making. All the panos on this page were taken with this camera. In the summer of 2004, I discovered of program called Hugin/PanoTools which allows to make multirow panoramas; it's not simple to use, but immensly powerful. At the end of 2004, a software called AutoStitch was released, this program allows for making a medium quality panorama without any human intervertion.

Please note that this page is more than 500 KB so it will be very long to load on a narrowband connection. To speed-up the site and reduce the load on the server, the panoramas are accessed through Coral, The NYU Distribution Network. The panoramas are sorted in reverse chronological order.
