Nikon D7000

Nikon D7000 can be used to create 360 degree Flash panorama with Panoweaver.

Lenses that can be used: fisheye lens, wide-angle lens and normal lens.

Shoot Panorama with Nikon D7000 + Fisheye lens

We recommend 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor and Sigma 8mm F3.5 (or F4) EX DG Fisheye to go with Nikon D7000. You can get drum-type fisheye photos or circular fisheye photos and then stitch with Panoweaver to get a 360 degree spherical panoramic photo. You can get full frame fisheye photos with lenses like AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D and Sigma Fisheye 15mm f/2.8 EX Diagonal Fisheye Autofocus Lens.

Shoot Panorama with Nikon D7000 + Normal lens

Before shooting with normal lens, check this page to calculate number of photos to take in order to get a 360 degree panoramic photo.
