Review

I am now starting to play with the SurroundPhoto a bit. I have taken it out twice, and shot some "in the field" tests with it. You can see samples at http://www.dmrenfaire.com/vr/pano (.mov and .jpg panoramas).

Basically, very easy to use. Works well. Limited up/down vision (you can set the software to generate the VR zoomed slightly, which gives you a tad up/down). Optic quality is kind of dull (plastic mirror, easy to get specs and dust on it) but ... hey, for the price, it's a great toy! Now I know I want to get a 0-360!

2/3/2005 - I was able to buy a new Nikon Coolpix 5400 camera for $216 (after $200 rebate) in order to use these one shot optics. I needed a lens adapter ($15, by Nikon) and a sizing ring ($7, local photo supply shop) in order to mount the device.

8/26/2005 - I am now starting to use the SurroundPhoto. Here are some sample photos I took, all using default software settings.
