Maybee am I misunderstanding something here. I was asking how you made the picture in the link (180x360). I might be the you answered on. How did you do it, which program. I have cs5 extended. Will that to this?
As mentioned I take 4 shots every 90 degrees at 12 mm plus nadir. I use PTGui to stitch them together. Last step is to convert the picture into flash (which I use krpano for).
To answer your question, no cs5 is not able to handle fisheye images. The stitching capabilities of cs5 are very limited.
Mike how you like the 8-15??
I like that lens VERY much. It is very solid built, it feels good, it's an "L" type lens as it should be. I used the 15 mm prime before and I don't see much of a different to the 8-15 regarding image quality.
