Hi all,
I'm entering now in this pano world and I want to do it professionally buying the right software and hardware.

I do 3D panoramas using virtual renders not photos.
I want to integrate and match 3d virtual objects with real photos.
Panotour Pro is an excellent software and probably I will buy the stitching tool.

I would like to ask you the follow questions:

I want to buy a fast and precise motorized head, do you think that the Seitz VR Roundshot drive is good enough?
or
Is it better to buy a rig with 6 GoPro 3+?
I don't want to shot videos, I'm interested in the best quality possible (not giga photo). I got several Sony Zeiss lenses.
There is an issue with moving people shooting panoramas. How to fix it?
Do you suggest one shot head and 3 camera bodies?
What's the best solution?

I read about a product: PTGrey Ladybug 5. Worth it?

thank you for your answers.
regards

edit: please move this post it in "hardware". Sorry.

Or Dr Clauss Rodeon:

And lenses?

thank you,

I got an Alpha 55 with some Zeiss lenses: 16-24, 24-70, 85, 135

For moving people probably I need a fisheye but I loose in quality.

You loose resolution using a fisheye. But you definitely win when shooting cowded places . . :cool:

You also can use non-fisheyes . . . but be prepared to need MASSIVE editing.

If you decide to buy a fisheye for shooting in crowded places: better use a manual head and use the saved money to buy a good
fisheye-lens.

best, Klaus
