White Balance

I have the Nikon D70 which is a very simlar camera.

What you want to do is use a pre-set white balance e.g.

If shooting outdoors I typicaly use the sunshine preset white bal., as opposed to auto white bal.

If shooting indoors I typicaly use manual white bal. using a sheet of epson mate paper to set it against.

Look in your manual for how to set them for you camera (it's easy).

By the way some people think that if you shoot in RAW you don't have to worry about white bal. But I have found that it is always better to get the white bal. somewhat close (within at least 1000 degrees)

For the first few panos I would suggest shooting them in JPG. Unless you understand RAW well.

For highest quality I would suggest when shooting panos using RAW mode. The reason being when putting the photos together the extra data in RAW can curb posterization espically in the sky. Then when converting the RAW file if you have shot the pano with all the same exposures and white bal. just use "as shot" to a 16 bit file.

Then take those files into PTgui or PTassembler to put them together.

You also should look for emblend and autopano. They are plug-ins for PTgui and PTassembler that automate the process quite a bit. There is info about both of them in the forms at the PTassembler site.

Watch out it shooting panos and big mosaics can be very addicting. I have photos from my D70 that would rival an 8X10 film camera. I can print them at 32"X40" with well over 300 dpi. and no up-sampling.
