    Just happy I got it to work. I forgot to get out of the way for the zenith shot - you can see me. :D

    Thanks for putting up with me. :p

    That looks brilliant! That must have taken some time?

    But, GET OUT OF THE BOAT THERE IS A HOLE IN THE FLOOR!

    :)

    That is very sweet! I feel like I'm looking at a potential boat purchase!

    Maybe you could wave at the camera next time :cool:

    The pic looks very well done, btw; it looks like you know what you're doing. I expected a panorama from the top of the boat looking at surrounding scenery, and I was curious how you were going to counteract the waves....

    iGary, I think I remembered you saying that you used your 8mm fisheye for stuff like that.

    I don't understand how there is no barrel distortion in the actual image....

    ^^Software takes care of that. ;)

    I'm just wondering how you got the shot of the ceiling to stitch together to the 360º horizontal view so well? That horizontal view required 5 shots, right?

    His Fisheye is mega wide so maybe that was how...

    Haven't you heard? Black hole bottomed boats are all the rage now. :D

    Niiice! Looks like that template's working out well. If you want a good, inexpensive logo to put over the hole in the bottom, check out GotLogos.Com. They did mine. Just tell Daniel what you want and he'll usually come up with something good. You should probably specify that you want it round :p

    Agreed! OT: I need to find a friend in SW Florida that has a sailboat. Back in the glory days there was this guy with a really nice rig - and he would take us out on the bay and we'd ride like the wind. I want my boys to experience that. I guess I could charter a ride. Just started thinking about it recently :p

    iGary, being the Macrumors pics thread whore that you are, you don't have any in that thread. I was kinda shocked, I figured you were white headed black man, about 275lbs. You surprised me :p :)

    Seven total - 6 around and one up.

    I'm having fun with it - getting better at actually improving the image quality now (making the shots better), which is hard with this 8mm fisheye.

    Thanks for the comments. It was a frustrating road getting here, but thanks to Cooknn and the Matt over at 360Precision it's a cinch now. :)

    Oh, wow, that is sooo neat! A very nice boat, too! Must've been a challenge, though, to counteract the gentle rocking motion of the water....

    You have to stop posting these.

    I can't afford a new head and a new lens for quite a while. :(
