I wonder about the pros and cons for a tech camera of stitching vs using a wider lens and why people stitch.
The pros for stitching I see is:
-(much) higher resolution
-eventually less distorsion
-maybe you need less lenses
The pros for using a wider lens instead of stitching I see:
-you need less time taking the image and less time processing it (specially if you also use white shading)
- you can judge the exposure of the whole image in one histogramm - so it should be easier to find the right exposure compared to maybe having different bright subjects in the left and right of 2 stitched images
- you dont have any problems with subject movement (clouds, trees in the wind, people,....
- you capture one moment as it was when using a wide angle, a stitched images is like melting different points in of time into one image by software(maybe more a mental thing)
-better/easier for composition
And maybe for those who own both, a nice ultra wide angle (lets say 23,24,28) and a lens with large image circle (lets say 45,47,...) what do you prefer: stitchingor just using the wide angle and why?
