Southwark Cathedral has only been a cathedral since 1905, but the building itself goes back to the 13th Century when it was a priory church. The cathedral is located right next to Borough Market on the South bank of the river Thames. If you visit on a market day in Summer, make sure you wander through the market too and get some lunch.

This particular panorama was a test shoot and I chose Southwark Cathedral because there is plenty of detail in every shot for stitching and camera/lens calibration. A small payment is required for a permit to take photos, but many similar public buildings in central London have a complete ban on tripod-photography. I shot two rows of photos at -35 degrees and +55 degrees plus two down shots (one handheld).

Equipment Used

17 shots (two rows) using Canon EOS 20D, Canon 10-22 EFS lens, Nodal Ninja 3 panoramic head, Manfrotto 338 leveller, Manfrotto 190MF3 MagFiber tripod, Realviz Stitcher Unlimited
