Handrail Pool

by on Sep.29, 2019, under Life, Photography

Here at the end of the trail at Weano Gorge we have the Handrail Pool

A stitched panorama from a single row of five (5) horizontal frames with the fabulous Nikon Z7 plus the 14-30/4 Z lens at 23mm

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S @ 23 mm, 4 sec at f/8, ISO 64 x 5 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

… and just for comparison here is that panorama compared to two I took with the Mavic 2 Pro

Those are comprised of three (3) rows of seven (7) horizontal frames with a 28mm equivalent lens. And these are the straight out of drone JPEG pano’s

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/30 sec at f/2.8, ISO 400 x 21 Frames

At this size and even full screen on my computer they compare very favourably

The differences appear when you view it zoomed (like at 1:1)

The Z7 pano is 21,000 pixels across and has superb detail and clarity even zoomed to 1:1. The Mavic 2 pano’s are 8,200 pixels across and not anywhere near as clean

I suspect if I stitched the RAW images out of the Mavic they would be better but still I expect not near the Z7

Still for what it is and the portability, convenience and indeed possibilities… the Mavic 2 Pro produces very nice and usable images
