Autumn on campus
|I guess I missed the peak color of this grove of trees. It must have been spectacular a week ago.|
|The student experience, which now includes KAP.|
|It's always good to have live music when kites are flying. What would be the soundtrack to your hobby? (Pro tip: find somebody who can actually play the instrument.)|
|Forest Hall (lower left) and the main campus quad beyond.|
|A bunch of residence halls, Adirondack House, and the science building at the west edge of campus.|
The little planet image below is the same stitch as the embedded spherical panorama below it. The embedded panorama is straight from Microsoft ICE and has not been edited so you can find lots of stitching artifacts. The little planet projection was put into Photoshop where most of the glaring artifacts were patched up. The original is a big image so it could be printed six feet across and you wouldn't see any pixels.
There is a fullscreen button in the viewer below (except in Chrome) or it can be enjoyed fullscreen at Photosynth.
|Oh, those long gone college days. Captured by a camera hanging from a kite line (as it was landing).|
There are two other little planet KAP panoramas of the Middlebury College campus here.
- Model: PowerShot S100
- ISO: 125
- Shutter speed: 1/640 second (Tv)
- Focus: manual on infinity
- Focal length: 24mm (eq.)
- White balance: Sunny
- GPS: on
- Remote enabled: one push, quick
- The S100 has a shutter priority mode so CHDK is not needed for that
- Version: 2.4 (3-switch DIP)
- Sketch: version 2.08sfm (beta)
- Mode: Mode 0 (for 24 mm lens, 25 photos/cycle)
- Power: 6 eneloop AAA
- Customization: The nadir tilt angle was changed from 20 to 11 so the camera was pointed straight down.
- Kite: FLED
- Wind: From NE, 7 to 10 mph
- Duration: 1 hour
- Photos taken: 1035
- Software: Microsoft ICE
- Stitching: all 25 photos from one cycle stitched together.
- Post processing: Some stitching errors in the little planet panorama were hidden in Photoshop. Some white buildings were darkened to fix overexposure. Panoramas at Photosynth cannot be passed through Photoshop so what you see there is what Microsoft ICE produced.
