Pentax with 8m fisheye

Hi,

 I am curentlly making panos with my pentax K20D with sigma 10-20 wide angle. I am only taking 6 shots and not doing the full 360x180. I am looking into getting a 8mm fisheye with 180 degree view , hoping to do the full 360x180 in 4 shots. Would this combo work?

You will be able to complete a 360x180 with the Sigma 8mm fisheye in 4 shots yes. You will cover this by tilting the camera/lens up around 7.5 degrees and shooting 4 shots, 1 every 90 degrees. You will be left with the tripod to be capped, cloned or healed in Photoshop. Or you could shoot another hand held nadir shot to stitch in.

Regards, Smooth
