Agreed; if you have a camera with lots of manual settings it could in theory be easier to pull it off.

Depending on the time/place, if you're not playing with a tripod you might as well give up.

[note: people can be makeshift tripods]

Anyone know of other pics like this?

Really excellent panoramas like this are dificult since its hard to get constant contrast stability during daylight hours. You can balance the brightness and contrast in Photoshop, but getting all the channels matched is extremely difficult. You actually need to adjust brightness/contrast for the highlights, mid tones, and shadows independently in order to match seamlessly. Oh, and free transformation work to get the edges to line up.

Here is one I did from my trip to Rome last weekend. You can clearly tell where the edges line up because I can't figure out how to exactly get all the channels balanced. Its like pushing a pingpong ball uphill with a 30ft pole.

The thumbnail is a link to a 1.1mb picture, 800x3038 pixels.

Heres an even rougher one. If anybody has specific pointers or an application that can stitch panoramas better than my un-leet Photoshop skills, please post it.

Super High Resolution versions of both are available but I won't post them here. PM me if you want them. They're 6.6mb and 12mb, consecutively.
