Making Photo Spheres with a regular camera
Some notes from my experiment with making photospheres. My choice of equipment:
1) Sony A7ii
2) Samyang 8mm 2.8 fish eyes (it's a crop frame fisheye, needs ha sawing of the hood).
3) a piece of string with a weight (to know where the centre of the pano is)

Works great and no mall security has tried to stop me yet, which I'm sure would have happened as soon as I pulled a tripod out of the bag ;)
Now for software I've tried ptgui pro, autopano giga and hugin, with different levels of success:
1) Autopano giga is only matching one out of five of these hand shot spheres.
2) Hugin seems like I could get there but I got lost in the interface complexity ;)
4) PT GUI Pro, works like a charm, hasn't failed me yet. And I like the tone mapper as I'm shooting these in HDR.

Worst part is adding the metadata, but I've sorted it too. If anyone interested I'll add it on a future post.
