In the log file I am getting lots of the following:
VtApp: Could not find ccd width for 'E-510 '
VtApp: Unable to get focal plane x resolution
VtApp: Unable to get focal plane y resolution
VtApp: Unable to get focal plane resolution unit
VtApp: CCD width is outside acceptable interval

Using an Olympus E-510.

We have a database with sensor sizes for about 600 cameras in the product now. We combine the sensor size with the focal length in the EXIF to compute the Field of View (FOV). Why do we need this? Imaging taking two photos of the same scene that look identical, one taken very near with wide angle and one taken further away with telephoto. By computing the FOV from the lens/camera combination we have a more accurate estimate of distance which improves the overall output of the synth. If we don't know the FOV we use a default starting point and the synther actually figures out what the FOV was as it pieces things together. This usually works fine but loosely connected synths do benefit from having this knowledge ahead of time.

Right now the sensor sizes are baked into the synther. There may be a way to override for your camera, I'll do some investigation and share my findings here.

Ken, I have the same problem with a different Olympus camera -- the Olympus E-3.

18:59:10 VtApp: Could not find ccd width for 'E-3 '
18:59:10 VtApp: Unable to get focal plane x resolution
18:59:10 VtApp: Unable to get focal plane y resolution
18:59:10 VtApp: Unable to get focal plane resolution unit
18:59:10 VtApp: CCD width is outside acceptable interval

This is the Synth in question. http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=d...

Just a quick note to say the N95 isn't supported either. Do you guys at Microsoft log the CCDs with unknown sizes and plan to add support for the most popular ones later?
Maybe there's some way that advanced users could supply this information?
