An experiment in handheld 'vertorama' photography in low light.
While I love the basic concept behind the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 camera, the sensor is just not up to the task for any kind of low light photography. Top ISO is 400, and it's very noisy. It has what is essentially a tiny point-and-shoot sensor in an SLR-'like' body with a really nice Leica12x zoom lens (36mm to 436mm equivalent). In good light it's a pretty decent camera.
Nevertheless, here is what Photoshop's Photomerge was able to do with I forget how many shots.
