U/W Panos - Sorry - this is nothing new. My underwater photo class was
shooting them with Nikonos V cameras and a 22mm Sea & Sea lens back in the
1980's, and assembling them manually - or in the enlarger.
has U/W panos shot in 2004
There are many of them in the stock photo sites as well.
Just google "underwater panoramic."
Perhaps the fact that they are developing a pano camera for underwater use
is new, but shooting them is old hat.
