What stitching sofware are you guys using for stitching multiple images with this lens?

I use PT Gui or photoshop but you dont really need stitching software just something to align the frames as they should match up perfectly if you use shift.

That's the weird thing, my images don't line up perfectly and it's taking quite a bit of tweaking to get it unnoticeable. I guess a couple of questions are:

1.) Does tilting mess up the image lining up when you are shifting? (even if you kept the same tilt for all 3 images)

2.) Does the tripod head have to be completely level before shifting? (I'm guessing yes but I've never paid attention)

Yes and yes.

When you create a panorama by shifting (also known as flat stitching), keep in mind that you need to maintain the center of front element (or the shifted portion of the lens) in the same location but 'slide' the camera (sensor plane) instead to compensate for the shift in order to avoid alignment issues.

It's best explained here:

By doing so, parallax is eliminated. This particularly effective for keeping objects in close range aligned after stitching.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

For the guys on here posting amazing stitched landscape shots do you find that this is necessary? Or is it more in relation to stitching images with detailed foregrounds?

Here are some from a recent hawaii trip. Using different variations of Lee filters (GND S&H, CPL, big stopper, 3 stop)

I am still quite new to tilt/shift and am learning.

Shot with a 1Dx and TS-E 24mm II
Fill flash with a hotshoe mounted Canon 600ex-rt

Here is one with a bit more PP than I usually do.

Contrast making applied and curves adjusted. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

In most landscape shots, it should not be an issue as grass, shrub and bushes can mask parallax very effectively. It becomes problematic when you have geometrical patterns or straight line objects in the foreground, particularly at junctures of the shots. I've only tried flat stitching a few times and I do not have precision macro rail so I had to eyeball the shift compensation; the result was so-so, in my opinion. When done right, however, I can tell that the foreground parallax could be eliminated with careful compensation.

Shifted panos with a tilt-shift lens don't have parallax issues or any need for additional pano gear such as rails.
