I commute most days of the week from San Francisco to San Jose on CalTrain. I’ve been very frustrated by the poor signal quality for most of the route. T-Mobile kept insisting that I needed to provide a speed test from a single, fixed location. Given that a CalTrain “Baby Bullet” express train travels nearly a mile in the ~40 seconds it takes to run a speed test (their top speed is 79 MPH), this basically isn’t feasible.
Here’s a panorama I shot of the Bay Bridge Lights art project on March 22nd. Like my other gigapixel panoramas, this was taken with a GigaPan EPIC Pro motorized pano head, Canon 5D Mk II, a 70-200mm f2.8 USM IS L II lens at 200mm, and a Canon 2x extender. (PS. I’m hoping to up the ante on this one by shooting a higher-resolution image; if anyone has access to 400mm+ lenses of good quality, please let me know… I am capped out 3.63GP with 2x 200mm but with a doubled 400mm or 800mm lens this could be 14.5GP. With a doubled 800mm lens this could be 58GP, quite probably the largest panorama shot in San Francisco.)
Here’s a panorama I did today of Dolores Park in San Francisco, CA. It’s late January and Dolores Park is crowded due to the beautiful weather. Check out the line at the corner of 18th and Dolores: those folks are waiting to buy ice cream!
Enjoy this 360° nighttime pano from a rooftop in San Francisco’s historic Dogpatch District, with views of Oakland, downtown SF, the Bay Bridge, the Port of SF, planes landing at SFO, and more. Click the full screen button directly below the “View All” button in the upper-right-hand corner for the best results. Zoom in! What neat things can you spot?
This was taken with a GigaPan EPIC Pro motorized pano head, Canon 5D Mk II, a 70-200mm f2.8 USM IS L II lens, and a Canon 2x extender. Exposed for 2″ at f10. 540 shots at 400mm.
Thanks to my friends and loved ones who came out to my housewarming party!
