Photographer Henry Reichhold was first introduced with his story about using the SIGMA sd Quattro H to create time lapse images and his exhibition at the London Bridge Railway Station. Henry has embarked on a new project with his SIGMA sd Quattro H to stick together a series of images to create panoramic images and tells how the versatile SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG HSM | Sport lens has helped him to achieve his desired effect.
Shooting a panorama that combines multiple elements to create an overall narrative requires quite a lot of flexibility in both the approach and the capture. The focal range of the SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports is comprehensive and its ability to quickly move from standard focal length to telephoto made it easy to shoot the required elements that make up this image. It really was a smooth and trouble free process.
A perfect partnership was also created when combining the qualities of the Sigma 60-600mm | Sports lens with the SIGMA sd Quattro H. The camera’s high resolution and unique ability to accurately record the subtle colours needed to capture atmosphere and mood made it ideal for shooting a whole range of cityscapes.
The “kite flying on Hampstead Heath” image combines a cityscape panoramic captured with the 60mm focal length and merges this with elements shot throughout the lenses wide range.
Using the SIGMA telephoto to create a stitched panoramic gives you tremendous detail and the handy lens lock ensures continuity of the focal length.
Getting the right distance from your subject is also a simplified process because of the lenses comprehensive range.
Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s cathedral appear to be very close to each other in this capture but in reality they are two kilometres apart! That is the magic of long lens compression.

It has been a real pleasure to use this combination. This versatile lens, from wide angle stitched panoramic images to intensely detailed 600mm constructs this very capable lens takes it all in its stride.
