PanoramaScanCam(TM) First Outdoor Test
23 Apr 2007, by Mac Cody
This is the first outdoor test of the PanoramaScanCam(TM) in my backyard on a cloudy, breezy evening at 7:43 PM CDT. The image is the direct digital output with appropriate aspect ratio correction and cropping to obtain a 360-degree cylindrical image.
The PanoramaScanCam(TM) is a panoramic scanner camera I built, based on a UMAX 2100U flatbed scanner. The image is of my backyard. Some focus and image gain issues need to be resolved, but I'm pretty happy with it.
