Seitz is refining the Roundshot VR Drive to include some great new features. The advances are quite significant. First of all, this precision panoramic head will now be fully motorized in the vertical as well as horizontal directions. Also the device will be capable of full HDR captures. There are various options to meet the needs of a variety of panoramic photographers.

This was an image that I made with the Canon 5D and Seitz VR Drive during a trip to Colorado in the fall of 2007. Recently, I noticed that I had never processed this HDR panorama. So, I thought I’d try using some new software. I used DXO Optics Pro 6 to process the RAW files. I did this to eliminate chromatic aberrations and to reduce image noise. For stitching, I used the latest beta version of Autopano Pro from Kolor, which has a fabulous new stacking feature. It stacks the bracketed exposures and then stitches them in perfect registration. I used HDR Expose to merge the three resulting files. Finally I did some post processing in Photoshop CS5 and the Viveza2 Photoshop plug-in from Nik.

This HDR image does not look like an HDR and that is intentional!
