Thank you for your link, it seems that Mediapix uses this combination.
I know that the resolution isn't the own quality parameter, but it's hard to believe that I won't get a better quality with a 8MPix camera instead of a 3MPix...
About the 8800, I received an Easypano's newsletter a couple days ago :
Nikon company once announced that Nikon Coolpix 8800 Camera can capture full circular fisheye images, but after testing, our photographers found that the fisheye image can not cover 180 degrees of FOV. Nikon Coolpix 8800 is still compatible with Panoweaver 3.01, but in order to get full 360 degrees panorama, you have to shoot three images, then stitch them together in Panoweaver 3.01 Professional Edition.
So you have to take 3 pics, but as I read on this forum, you get a better quality with 3 shots...
Did you hear about that :
And if yes, what do you think ? If that really works, it seems to be the best Quality/Price/Speediness combination. 3 shots, hi-res pano...
