Has anybody here tried shooting a pano with the gimbal rotated and stitched the images together? Would love to see some final products.

So far the only example I've seen was on this video @ 5:04 -

Excellent images! Do you recall how many photos it took to compose each version? (i.e. 5 portrait images vs 3 landscape, etc)

Based on the preview image I was thinking the portrait shot was out of focus, but once you click it open it shows the clarity much better Very nice work

Not off the top of my head.. I do recall taking a few too many Landscape ones so cropped ( just each end a little ) that image to match the portrait one as close as possible. I will check when I get home how many photos I too for each. I did allow for a lot of overlap for each image though, I always do this..

Will it do 360 panos or just 180?

I mean, you can take as many sequential images as you like (5 or 50) and just keep rotating the quad a few degrees at a time until you complete a full 360.. I think there are apps that facilitate pano photography and would be helpful in automating this.
It would be up to you to find a software that can stitch the images into a finalized 360 interactive image..

Did you shoot raw (dng)?
The place and the photo is very nice but the quality unfortunately not so when viewed 100%. There are also some stitching issue that are quite visible. A lot of macro blocks in the photo so maybe trying RAW plus rescaling it 50% would produce a better quality photo.

Did but made the pano from the JPG as a quick example.. I agree on resizing the image but again, left full size as an example. I normally stitch with Autopano Giga but was using a different machine.. Lightroom seems to have created an error in the background at the same place on both images.

7 images made the Portrait and 9 made the Landscape. Auto settings on the camera.

The Litchi app has a pano mode, and Drone Pan is made specifically for this. I don't think either takes advantage of the portrait-rotated lens function yet, but likely will soon if not.
