GigaPanning the TWiT Cottage

On Sunday I had the rather unique and wholly enjoyable experience of visiting the TWiT Cottage in Petaluma, CA for the taping of an episode of This Week in Tech (TWiT #207). Needless to say, I brought along my GigaPan rig and Leo Laporte was gracious enough to give me the opportunity to demonstrate how it works on air. Fellow GigaPanner Mike Hellers (@mikehellers) was in the audience and had the wherewithal to record my 15 minutes of fame to YouTube:

After the show I shot a 360 degree GigaPan of the TWiT studio from Leo’s perspective.

Twitter is nice for quick text blurbs, but it just doesn’t compare to a true blog post for conveying images. Two for today, a Gigapan and a traditional photo, each from Montana. I offered the sunset photo as a “Where in the West?” quiz on Twitter but had no takers – was it too hard or did nobody see it? Maybe my blog readers will recognize it…
