Hi seconda, I use a 0-360 one shot which works the same at the pano pro and yes TW supports it no problem.

I wiould say however that if you have not yet commited to buying, have a good think about it as if this is a long term business you are planning then you should consider using DSLR + fisheye lens etc.

Main factors to consider are naturally quality but also with a one shot system your lens (mirror) has a limited life span i.e scratches, blemishes start to appear over a period and render it pretty useless. If you factor this in, having to replace a mirror then you would have been better off buying a decent camera and fish eye lens which cared for would give you many many years of use.

I have been there and still am and regretting it.

Just my 2 cents worth

nejaace,

Good point I wish I would have bought the DLSR + fisheye lense prior to the One-shot 0-360 and canon g5. Original cost was $1000, but when I bit the bullet and got the Nikon D300 and the Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye (WHAT A Difference!!!!!!!!) If only I knew then what I know now.

The True DSLR + optional lense capabilities makes the initial investment worth it.

sendhona,

I would opt for a "True" Fisheye lense purchase over the oneshot deal.

Easy is not the best way as far the oneshot is concerned - you are very limited once that lense is purchased. I too a have a oneshot and it is sitting in my closet.

I will not sell it to anyone with the assumption that it is a "True" 360 pano because it is not. It doesn't have the depth of field, it doesn't have the clarity.

I will say it is a tru "one Shot" but that's the end of it.....
