Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Easy 360 Panoramas
Easy 360 Panoramas
by Rick Smith (February 15, 1999)

Enroute Imaging announces that they will be bundling QuickStitch 360 with the Hakuba USA's VR Kit for only $239 MSRP. The QuickStitch 360 software automatically balances exposure and stitches overlapping images together into high quality, Virtual Reality-like panoramas. Technical users can also make manual adjustments for brightness, contrast and overlap points for greater image control. Output can be a single graphics file or a QuickTime VR movie, where you can "pan" around the scene and zoom in for finer detail. The Hakuba Videomate 507 tripod, with VR Head and Macro Slider assists in a confined environment by allowing each individual picture to be taken from the same physical "point" in space. This allows the pictures to be processed into better 360 panoramas faster, with higher quality and less cropping since the camera is more accurately centered on the tripod. This kit includes a carrying case, and is available for $199, without the tripod. Hakuba's VR Head sells for $159.99. Available at selected photo chains and from Enroute immediately. This looks like a great way to make panoramas quickly and easily.
