how about windows based phones? I guess it would need to be supported by the manufactures.
Have you had a look at this guys stuff, porting a Nintendo DS http://www.gizmag.com/nintendo-ds-digit ... ler/14746/
just a bit of food for thoughts.
In order to get the best focus through the whole scene, in particular with long lenses, you really need to have the help of the Helicon Remote. Carrying around on a 2-4Kg laptop in the field isn't fun! though it looks like I will have to deal with it over the weekend and hope that I can charge it via the 12v in the car.
anyway I will keep you informed, it is definately an application that would be suited to smaller devices, also if you have a look at the this guy at www.Autopano.net
using python to use the Nokia tablet phones as Pano Robot controllers for the Merlin heads.
Ok, I will leave you for now and return next week
thanks for listening
