WHAT IS PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPHY?

Panoramic photography comes from a sequence of images that are sewn together with photo stitching software. A Panoramic photo is created when you turn a camera slightly to the right for each different frame. RTV make photo stitching and panoramic photography very simple and it is 100% Automatic. 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!!

HOW DO YOU TAKE PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPHY?

At RTV we take all the confusing guesswork out of setting up your camera and hardware for panoramic photography. 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. Basically somewhere inside of your camera that can’t be determined 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”. Before you can be 100% setup to take panoramic photography you will need to find this nodal point so you don’t get parallax in your images. Parallax is easily demonstrated by holding up your finger about 1 foot in front of your face and alternately open and close your left and right eyes. It will appear that your finger shifts left and right with respect to the background depending on which eye is open. This relative movement is due to the fact that you’re not rotating your head around your eye’s nodal point, which is somewhere in the center of your eyeball. Instead, you’re rotating about your spine which is several inches to the rear and off to one side. It is this side-to-side motion that we help you eliminate during the RTV setup process which tees you up for flawless image assembly without stitching mistakes. Take a look at the video below which will show you how we get your camera properly setup to take a perfect panoramic photograph.

As you can see with the help of RTV rotator we are able to have the camera rotate about the nodal point and stop every 30 degrees to take your panoramic photograph. With the help of our rotator and proper setup your images should line up perfectly!

After hours/days/weeks of research for a company that could help me create panoramic photography, I found RTV to stand out from their competition. RTV was a no-brainer to go with. 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 panoramic photography 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 Real Tour Vision for help creating panoramic photography 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 company to go with. He helped me purchase the Panono and even chased down the UPS truck to make sure I got it in time for a big shoot I had. 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
