At RTV WE LOVE PANORAMAS! There’s something very appealing about the shape of a panorama photo. Perhaps it is because we see the world more in these dimensions than that of a square format of standard frames of years past. When is the last time you saw a square tube at the store?

RTV Helps You Make The Best Panoramas!

Panoramas sometimes have a bad reputation of being hard to make.  You can purchase a panoramic camera but if you’re going for the very best quality you might be disappointed with the quality. The very best panoramas are created using a DSLR camera and a fisheye lens. 

What is a Panorama Photo?

A panoramic photo comes from a sequence of images that are sewn together with photo stitching software. The panorama is created when you turn a camera slightly to the right for each different frame. RTV makes photo stitching and panorama creation very simple and the results are amazing.

Did you know that years ago before computers were around, students of panoramic photography would take prints, lay them out on a table and position them over each other where they overlapped and used sticky tape to hold them together?

Now that PCs and image manipulation packages are inexpensive and easy to use, high-quality panoramic prints can now be created by anyone. If you are shooting slide or negative film, you would need to have your images scanned before you do anything else.


At RTV we take all the confusing guesswork out of setting up your camera and hardware to make panoramas. The basic idea behind taking a panoramic photo with a regular digital camera or an SLR is that the camera is rotated around what we call the nodal point.

The nodal point is the point inside your camera where the light rays converge and flip over. It is impossible to guess the nodal point of a camera just by looking at the outside body of the camera. You will just have to take our word on it that our decade of being in business has made us experts in helping you find this “Sweet Spot”.

After hours/days/weeks of research for panorama photo software, I found RTV offered exactly what I needed. They offered so much more than anyone else. When I contacted Jason at RTV, he returned my calls promptly and answered all my questions very honestly. Now that I’ve made the decision to move forward with RTV, they’ve treated me like family. There has been a lot of time, thought and work put into RTV over the years and it shows. Their panorama photo software is also user friendly and well thought out. The other competitors didn’t offer half of what RTV does. I’m pretty happy that I made the choice to partner with RTV.

I started using panorama photo software from Real Tour Vision about a month ago. Jason and his staff were extremely helpful. Jason took the time to talk to me and email numerous times while I was deciding which product was best for my goals. The technical staff also went above and beyond answering my endless questions and helping me to get up and running. I love this service and so do my customers. There are so many things it offers that I haven’t even tapped into yet. They really thought of everything. I am very happy with my total experience so far and look forward to working with Real Tour Vision for a long time to come. Thank you, Christine Caso
