Creating equirectangular (circular) image with 2 fisheye images

by freefaller » Mon May 20, 2013 2:25 pm

I'm trying to build virtual tour images with just 2 fisheye images. I use a special fisheye lens that is 185 degree field of view. I typically use iPIX software. When I try to build the image I end up with a panorama and just the 2 fisheye images stacked. What am I doing wrong?

with a 5 degree overlap <3% overlap when 25% is whats recommended. Try using 4 photos and another 2 for the top and the bottom and see how much easier life can be:):)

This typically means the diagonal fov. That´s not enough for only two shots.

Not to be impolite or a smarta** but I think what you do wrong is trying to minimilise the number of photos you need to take. Your aim should be achieving the best result even if it takes a few more photos then just two.

Could you please explain that in detail: "i end up with a panorama and 2 fe images stacked"? Please post a screenshot here.

Which camera and lens do you use? Which head? You really use iPix for that??
