question

How close to the camera can the subject be without ghosting or other stitching errors?
Asked by: Dean S.
It is recommended to have a minimum safety distance of 0.8M, but it doesnt imply that it will always have issues. In some cases even 0.5M is fine. Always pay attention to the safety distance between camera and objects.
