Here's an image I made using your program! I hope you like it. David
I do!! its brilliant - what is it! Can I use it (attributed of course) on slitcam.com?

Hi Martin,.....Bluebells! If you'll excuse the pun, it is spring after all. It's not an original idea, check out Bryan Mumford's and Ted Kinsman's work, to name but 2. I'm flattered that you like it enough to want it on your website...so of course! The quality looks rather ropey at only 150kb so let me know what size you'd prefer. David

Please can you tell me how to configure the program to accept stills

panphoto - not sure why this should happen

You'll see that stepping is very noticeable, presumably indicating that far more images need to be made per revolution, or the speed of the turtable needs to be slower. Realistically though, I think we'd be talking about many thousands of images to achieve the desired smoothness at high resolutions. Also, notice that there are subtle vertical striations visible slightly left of centre - probably the result of tiny luminance changes from the tungsten lighting over the lengthy exposure period. Clearly this is not the way to go with high resolution slitscan. I feel sorry that your work has come to this but it does at least clarify the options. So, thank you again for your noble efforts in this regard.
There are however 3 possible alternative solutions, neither of them cheap:
1. Sony make a slow-motion (up to 200fps HD) video camera, the FS-700 which is 4K ready, so double the width of HD. The camera is available but as yet the 4K recorder isn't. Little change can be expected from £14,000 + lenses.
2. Seitz make a D3 Roundshot panoramic camera that has a vertical size of 7500 px. This will set you back around £30,000 + lenses.
3. Spheron make a panoramic camera too. I don't know what size the chip is but it's the one used by Jay Mark Johnson. I believe that this camera is in the £40,000 region.
So far no one has come up with a 'smiley' that captures the depth of disappointment this all brings! David
Panphoto Glad you got the program to work!
Panphoto: I am assuming you mount the camera very firmly and an external shutter release timer, if so what rate of image taking and speed of turntable? Presumably manual mode to avoid exposure changes, fixed WB.

Very impressive stuff! Glad you found this forum despite its Canon bias. I see Canon and Nikon as extraordinarily similar, just wish they had both adopted an open set of standards and were cheaper!
