I am shooting a very complex model train layout in a room that is about 30 feet by 30 feet. The ceiling is about 6 feet above the layout, and there are a lot of hills in the layout. The ceiling has exposed metal beams that are easy to clamp to.
I thought it would be cool to shoot a panorama from above to show the whole layout. If I move the camera, I understand I am making an orthographic panorama at that point. It seems like it would be a lot more accurate than swiveling the camera.
But stitching orthographic panos is apparently a nightmare.
I am willing to rent a lens to do the job. I'll probably use a Canon 5D Mark2 to shoot, so I can use live view.
Any suggestions on the best lens for the job? How much overlap should I create? Any recommended software for orthographic panos?
Am I being silly not to just shoot a regular pano by swiveling the camera? Don't need perfection to become the enemy of the good
