How I Photosynth’d my family room

I just put up a Photosynth of my family room. Unfortunately you need a Windows machine to view it. But, this is a combination of 50 images I made this afternoon with my Canon 5D.

It took only a few minutes to upload them all and complete the Photosynth. Very easy to do. Anyone can do it, you just need to plan out your Photosynth a bit. Sort of like a big stitched panorama, except that people can “walk” through the images and zoom into different ones.

Can you find the photo of our 11-month-old son, Milan?

  1. Well as Far as the Photosynth goes, I’m sadly NOT IMPRESSED. After reading about it in Popular mechanics. I Thought It was going to be MUCH more Like the 360 stitched PANO Views I’m seeing so much more of today. I’m Not saying the Software isn’t useful or appealing to some, I Guess I just Expected more from Microsoft. The Overlapping of Photographs especially into a 3-D effect is A LOT Harder than Most people even realize.If Anyone would like to see some remarkable 360 panoramic AERIAL Shots, Checkout this link http://www.steamboataerials.com/. Those are pretty Breathtaking. Most are 5 or 6 shots taken from a Hovering RC Helicopter, OR an Aerial BOOM pole. This IS A QUICKTIME Application, So pretty much anyone can view these. I CANT Find the Other Site, But there is Another setup that allows Zooming in and out as well as 360 degree.

  3. Mac OSX support is being pursued by Live Labs. They know where the photographers are. ;)

    The current release is a bare bones gift to all the people who, like me, have been going crazy for the last two years wishing we could try it for ourselves. It is essentially still in beta and I couldn’t be happier to have it at my disposal.

    The list of improvements that will be made to Photosynth in the coming months and years has no end in sight.

  5. I still think it has a good way to go before it’s more than something for geeks to play with. Will say we have the same swing, they will put them to sleep in seconds…
