|Question / Issue|
|Can a Panoramix Print be made from a digital camera or does it need a special lens or setting on the camera|
|Answer / Solution|
Yes, Panoramix™ prints are typically made from digital camera files. However, most digital cameras do not capture enough information, in a single frame, to enlarge to our very largest Panoramix™ sizes (48"–120" in length).
We print many of these very large Panoramix™ prints, and all of them are from digital camera files, but the photographer has almost always assembled the image from multiple files. Portraits of large groups can be composited using multiple shots of smaller sub-groups of people. Or, it is common in landscape photography to place the camera on a tripod, then take multiple shots, rotating the camera on the tripod, keeping the horizon in the same location, and overlapping each frame. Then "stitching" software is used to assemble the multiple photos into one long panoramic shot. This results in a single image with a very large file resolution and enough data to support the large print size.
Many digital cameras do have special panoramic settings to help you register the multiple shots as you move the camera for each new exposure. Recently there have been camera manufacturers add features where you simply pan with the camera and it captures multiple shots and assembles them automatically.
In our FAQ system, you can search for Panoramix and/or panoramic to find several explantions to customers asking specific questions about how to build panoramic shots. Also, a Google search for panoramic will provide you with an abundance of information and links to software programs designed to help you build panoramics.
