PanoramaScanCam(TM) Second Outdoor Test
29 May 2007, by Mac Cody
This is the second outdoor test of the PanoramaScanCam(TM) in my backyard on a partly cloudy evening at 7:47 PM CDT. The image is the direct digital output with appropriate aspect ratio correction and cropping to obtain a 360-degree cylindrical image. It is a significant improvement over my first test.
The PanoramaScanCam(TM) is a panoramic scanner camera I built, based on a UMAX 2100U flatbed scanner. The image is of my backyard. Focus and image gain issues have been resolved somewhat since my first outdoor test.
