Hugin: panorama tool with post refinement

The special feature of Hugin is the possibility for post refinements, which we did not test. Without post refinement, there is a light dark border.



Hugin: panorama tool with post refinement
The special feature of Hugin is the possibility for post refinements, which we did not test. Without post refinement, there is a light dark border.

Each new panorama program in our compare test shows an other detail, which makes our test material so complicate. PhotoStitch had problems because the camera was not exaxtly vertical on the tripod Panoramafactory got a bad evaluation, because there are ghost in the overlap zones betwen the photos.

  In the late dusk, it becomes quick dark


EXIF shows, that the first photo was taken 9:28:36 pm, the last 9:32:20. In only 214 seconds had been 15 part pictures for the panorama produced. In the late dusk are 214 seconds enough for a considerable difference in light, like Hugin makes it visible at the border between the first and last created photo.

The original photos for the test



  Panorama software test


The big quality difference between PhotoStitsch 3.1 (delivered with the S1) and our since 2000 used PixAround induced a big compare test.

Panorama software PhotoStitch 3.1 Panorama software PhotoStitch 3.1
The software delivered together with the Canon S1 did not perform well. The Venedig panorama is much circumcised. The Markus church without towers.


PixAround panorama software in test PixAround panorama software in test
At us cince 2000 used as a problem free error tolerant software for panoramas. Freehand or not complete straight on the tripod, PixAround makes the best out of the photos.


Panoramafactory: the ghost software Panoramafactory: the ghost software
In the Panoramafactory 3.3 panorama appear several ghosts, which are suppressed by PhotoStitch 3.1 and PixAround. The shadowy ghosts ruin the panorama.

1530 pixel height in a panorama remain from 1600 pixel height from the part photos. Here is Panoramastudio better than PixAround. But there are ghosts in the overlap areas.
