Pictures shot with Sigma 8mm lens needed

Does anyone have Sigma 8mm fisheye lens or 8mm Nikkor f2.8? Please shot 3 fisheye images with your SLR camera and Sigma 8mm fisheye lens or 8mm Nikkor f2.8, 120 degrees one to another, and sent them to us. We needed these samples to make 3 fisheye images stitching even better.

Hello Seaman,

I have aquired a Sigma 8mm fish eye lens. I will be be building a suitable pano bracket to suit it in the next week. If you have not recieved any images from this lens by the time I am finished, I will shoot some film and scan the images and send them to you.

Regards,

Joseph

Seaman, 

I just sent you a Nikon990 FE 1 set of 3 images by email.    These are unmodified images right from the camera. I also included the EXIF  info.txt file.  Please read the content.

Hope this helps

Dave

Thank Dave. As far as I have leart so far, it might not be able to shoot full circular image with Digital SLR Cameras + Sigma 8mm fisheye lens or 8mm Nikkor f2.8 so far. But it is possible with Flim SLR Cameras + Sigma 8mm fisheye lens or 8mm Nikkor f2.8. So anyone who has got a Film SLR Cameras and fisheye lens, please shoot 3 circular images, scan the film and sent them to us. We will be happy to offer you a copy of Panoweaver Professional Edition.

Hello, Seaman

why it might not be able to shoot full circular image with Digital SLR Cameras + Sigma 8mm fisheye lens ?

I'm surprised, since I just wanted acquire one.

There are fisheye lens with 180 degree FOV such as Sigma AF 8mm, Nikkor 8mm f/2.8. Sigma AF 8mm can mount to AF 35mm SLR cameras as Sigma SA, Minolta, Nikon (D), Pentax, Canon including DC and film camera.

However, the image shot with SLR Digital Camera (Canon D60/D30, Nikon D1/D100) and Sigma Fisheye lens are not a full circular image but a drum-style image (upper and bottom area are cut since the focus will be changed when SLR Digital Camera and fisheye lens are connected), so Digital SLR Camera are not able to be used in Panoweaver.

If you would like to use SLR camera, you can choose a film SLR camera and fisheye lens (Sigma AF 8mm or Nikkor 8mm f/2.8) to shoot circular images and then scan the flim or photo with scanners.

Hello Seaman,

i could send you 3 shots taken with Canon EOS 1Ds (full frame) and a Sigma 8mm fisheye on a Manfrotto Panohead. Would you still provide me with a free license of Panoweaver Pro?

Best regards

Speedy

Craig,

I take all of my shots in F2 mode as I have far more control with lighting issues. I don't get a full circle... though the overlap is enough to compensate.
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.

Phoenix,  if you use the FE2 mode  Portrait or Landscape?.. And how many shots to you take to make full 360?  Then the last question is.. what software are you using for stitching?

If you are sucessful, then this sounds like an interesting method we might like to try too.

Dave

Phoenix,

I know of many people using the FC-E8 in F2 mode, in portrait orientation, but they are using Panotools with PTGui, etc.

Are you using F2 mode with Panoweaver?  I assumed that this wouldn't work, so I haven't even tried it.
