This method has me very intrigued and I would really like to try it. Unfortunately, I don't have an 85 or anything longer. Would I be wasting my time trying with the long end of my 28-75mm @ 2.8? Some really cool shots in here. Thanks everyone!
Edited to say.....
So, I tried it real quick with my 50mm for a 35 image merge and PS6 keeps freezing up during the merge. I downsized the files to 4mb on export from LR4. Is my computer incapable of handling this or is it something else? Thanks!
your best bet is to use the 50mm. merging the images can take some time depending on how many shots you take, your computer and the software you use. i use CS6 to stitch, i have seen it take about an hour to stitch 100 pics in RAW, 24mb/ea. i know it's not my computer because it's the newest top of the line iMac. i found that microsoft ice is more consistent and way quicker to stitch! (ice would take about a minute to stitch 30 images, whereas cs6 would take 10-20+ mins). i would be patient, try to let it do its thing, if after 30 mins to an hour, you may want to consider upgrading your computer's memory as a starting point. processor power is the obvious way to go. good luck
