There is a long time since the last revision of Microsoft's free panorama package, so the update to version 2.0 is a bit of surprise. http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/ice/ Apart from a revised user interface, a new feature in this version is the "autocomplete" function. While large areas like the example below can be a bit funky, I have often done stitches where a bit of the sky is missing, and I think it can be useful and do a very good job with that. Here is the stitch screen where one can also rotate the image. I did not intend these two images as a panorama, in fact they a shot with two different zoom settings, 14 and 16mm, so projection is a not the best... Autocomplete. I would crop out most of the autocompleted rocks in the foreground. If rotating motion is selected, one will get a choice of a number of projection tweaks, now much expanded compared to the previous version. Of course this projection does not stitch well here because of the different focal length the images were shot at. There is also an advanced mode that will do Gigapan generated images of unlimited size, and several new import options. It will now read 16bit files, and can also use raw images if a raw (WIC) codec is present. A bit irritating is that there is an advertisement on the first screen.
These were captured with my D5100, please view large: A day in mid October, the sun sets over the ocean outside Nyksund in Vesterålen, Northern Norway. At this time of the year the sun does not set in the west, but more to the south. 1: (12-24mm @ 14mm f/9, 1/320s) A light drizzle of snow on the ground lights up the landscape. 2: (12-24mm @ 24mm f/9 1/40s) Nyksund is situated on two islands; panorama after sunset. 3: (A stitch of two mostly overlapping images from the 10.5mm fisheye, f/8 1/40s) A wider view of the ocean. 4: (stitch of two 10.5mm fisheye images at f/8 1/40s)
