panomount 20090118 DIY panoramic tripod mount

In response to my previous post on creating panoramic photos in Linux, reader Tim pointed us to this DIY camera mount tutorial.

When you rotate the camera to take different frames of the panoramic shot, it’s likely that the images of nearby objects will experience a perceptible parallax effect, which can cause problems during the stitching process. What this mount does is shift the rotation point of the camera to coincide with the “entrance pupil” of the lens, eliminating the perceived parallax effect.
