Panorama photo app showdown: Field of Jewelweed

September 30, 2011

The following gallery shows a 21-image panorama photo of a field of Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis) spotted during a photowalk through the “Wildlife Sanctuary,” one of seven small parks owned and maintained by the Community Association of Hollin Hills, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. The plant covered a broad area in a clearing of a deciduous forest, between two forks of an intermittent stream running through the park. AutoStitch Panorama app  ($2.99) was used to create the photograph: Photo 1 of 2 is a cropped version of the composite image; Photo 2 of 2 is the “raw” composite image.


I used 360 Panorama app ($1.99) to shoot a geotagged panorama photo of the same field of Jewelweed. A hyperlink to an online interactive version of the panorama photo is listed following the “flattened” version, shown below.

Compare and contrast the AutoStitch Panorama composite image with the same shot created using 360 Panorama and I think you’ll agree with me that AutoStitch is still King of the Hill in the field of panorama photo apps.

Mount Vernon Farmers Market Panorama Photos

May 11, 2011

Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market — located in the parking lot of Fairfax County Sherwood Regional Public Library — is open Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, May through November.

I used 360 Panorama app ($1.99) to shoot several geotagged panorama photos of the farmers market. Hyperlinks to online interactive versions of the panorama photos are listed following each “flattened” version, shown below. Very dynamic venues are not ideal locations for panorama photo shoots, as you can see by the blurry images of people moving around the farmers market.

Field test: 360 Panorama app

April 4, 2011


I used 360 Panorama app to shoot the preceding geotagged panorama photo of Milway Meadows, a residential community in Fairfax County, Virginia. The same panorama photo was uploaded via Posterous app (shown below); most of the EXIF/IPTC info, including GPS Info, is missing due to a bug in Posterous app for iOS. An online interactive version of the photo simulates virtual reality, enabling you to see what I saw! Can you see where the panorama came full circle? Let’s hope the developers at Occipital are able to figure out a clever solution for this glaring problem.


Contrast the 360 Panorama app photo with the same scene shot using AutoStitch Panorama app.
