proj-imim: help with full frame fisheye John Paraskevas 1905-Jan-24 07:22:20
Hello everyone:
  I'm fairly new to this list and I'm still trying to get comfortable 
using  both PanoramaTools and PTgui.  My immediate concern is trying 
to use images  taken with  a canon 15mm full frame fisheye on a Canon 
EOS-1N body.

My first question is wether it's possible to create cubic panoramas 
using 7 or 8 shots around plus one up and one down with this lens.

Right now,  I'm having a difficult time creating even a basic 
cylindical panorama with this lens. What is the actual HFOV of this 
lens? I've tried several numbers between 77 degrees and 136 degrees 
with out success. My resulting jpeg images are just a mishmash of 
non-connecting picture parts.

Also,  is it necessary to do a panotools correction (radial shift) 
in photoshop before importing the images to PTgui, and what would the 
typical settings be for that type of correction?

I'm hoping that someone out there who  has used this lens and camera 
combination can provide some advise or share a script that would give 
me a good starting point.   I would be extremely grateful for  any 
help at all.
