No. I don't want to get into a whole Google acceptance program before I get my head around the pro's and cons.
I believe there are restrictions on what you can charge and typical fees mentioned by GTPs are rather low.
You are obliged to give full image rights for any purpose to your client and Google gets free license for same images from the client to use as they may wish.
I also couldn't find a list of accepted hardware that photographers -need- to have.
atm I'm running a 30D with a nodal ninja and 10mm fisheye lens, and this has served me well for years now.
There are a number of approved camera bodies but I think a 30D is unlikely to feature on that list.
In terms of pano head I believe the options are a GTP package of the 360Precision Atome or a packaged GTP version of the Nodal Ninja U-R10.http://www.360precision.com/360/index.c ... der.googlehttp://www.nodalninja.com/qr/r1-r10/gtp ... aphers/29/
I believe the lens required is the Sigma 8mm 3.5 fisheye.
Some form of filtering when one is attached to a certain 'program' is understandable, but with Google I always feel I'm selling my soul to the devil ;-)
Many consider that you would be.
Few will say so publicly because I understand that Google imposes a draconian non-disclosure agreement on GTPs and applicant GTPs.
