My choice is to use a 35mm lens on the M9 and mount it vertically. I use 30
degree spacing for about 20% overlap. Because the panning support should be
level for a single row pano your horizon (assuming flat ground) will then
be across the middle of the frame. So there is more room to crop doing it
that way. I focus on infinity, not a hyperfocal distance and use DoF as
wanted for closer objects where applicable.
Howard and I put together a couple of examples and I made some suggestions
here (in the pretty much moribund LUG Pearls Wiki).
Gearhead type article! Yes I know it can be done more simply of course.
