PANO Calculator needs revision
04/10/17 at 18:55:46
The Pano Calculator says,
35 mm Film
  • height = 36 mm
  • width = 24 mm

this is wrong, the values are in fact reversed.
The same problem comes up with all the other Camera Data parameters with regard to film size and / or sensor size.

Would it be possible to correct the tool?

uhhhh  ... that's a very interesting point you got there.

As a matter of fact all panorama shooting happens in portrait mode, to maximize vertical field of view and minimize the number of rows to shoot. So the reversal is intentional. But you're right, it should probably be 35mm.

I dare say the entire site needs a revision. Been putting this off for a while now, because I'm completely wrapped up in a short film project. This is expected to wrap in the next 3 months, and then I shall steam full force ahead and rework the whole page. The pano calculator should also include some current camera presets, for example...
