    Yep nice idea to get easy panoramas, but I'd be worried what the edge definition would look like. In a case where taking a steady photo I would be more inclined to stitch together multiple frames to get the extended field of view. Higher resolution. This would work well though where the subject is moving.

    As an aside one of the thesis students in our department was working on missile navigation and horizon detection and wrote his own fisheye unwrapping algorithm. The lens in question had a 187 degree field of view.

    I love the idea of making panoramas with fisheyes.

    i've done that with my fisheye before. it look's cool, but only works for certain images since it does distort the edges quite a bit

    it worked okay for this shot though. on the full size though you can really see the distortion in the edges and background
