** No Panorama! **
Are there cameras or camera applications that can create long horizontal images using techniques similar to those of a scanner?
Such an application would take the video or use a live camera and use motion detection to extract a central column from each image to create an indefinitely long image.
The difference between this and the panorama is that the panorama works by rotating the camera. It works by moving the camera in one direction. So, imagine that you place the camera facing the side of a car or a train and that you make a long flat projection of an entire city.
I know I could potentially do this in Photoshop, but it would be extremely tedious, because only a small column in the center of each image can be used, otherwise there would be problems of distortion of perspective. I wonder if some cameras already support it. Many cameras now support apps and programmable devices have cameras
The Panorama software will not realize what I'm trying to get.
Trying to make more clear the result of the technique I am looking for would generate an image without horizontal perspective. Imagine that you are simply trying to take a photo from a shelf using 2 images, one for the 60% left side, another for the 60% right side. They overlap in the middle. In both images, you will have a perspective. You will see the sides of the shelves put in perspective towards the center and you will see that the Panorama software can not solve this problem.
On the other hand, if you take 1,000 images and only take the center at 1% of each image, you will get a flat image, at least in the vertical plane. Because the assembly of many (or many more) images is way too much work, ideally you want software that uses a live camera only takes a vertical pixel column of each image, which reduces storage and processing costs.
This is so that smart phone cameras take panoramas (at least one iphone). It only takes a column of pixels when you rotate the camera. Unfortunately, he uses the compass sensor to know that you are rotating. There is no position sensor accurate enough to know that you are dragging the camera from left to right. You will therefore have to use motion detection technology.
